Summer is damage time for us. Tragedy here in Queensland. Only three weeks ago people were praying for rain after years of drought. Rain came.. and came.. and came. Devastation on a scale never seen here before. 300 000 head of cattle lost. A sea of water hundreds of kilometres wide has just wiped out livelihoods of graziers in North West Qld.  I know a lot of those station people from my previous work as a teacher with School of the Air.  Lovely, hard-working rural families. My heart goes out to them.

Rough to be a Rancher out there!  We spend a lot of time praying for rain here; but it always includes a plea for moderation: "such moderate rain and showers"

Can't complain about the weather here in the SF bay area. We got a little dusting of snow on the hills last week, but it rarely freezes down at sea level. Nevertheless, California keeps burning up during the late summer months (many of the fires being quite suspicious in origin).
