Just popping in briefly to update you on our fire situation here in New South Wales.

For the last two days we have had lots of glorious rain. In fact yesterday and today we have had more rain than we have had in the last 4 months. Rain is forecast for the next few days too.

I hope the rain is also falling in the fire affected areas and also in farmland across our country.

I saw a lovely video clip on the news last night where a little boy was running about in the rain on his parents farm. He was 18 months old and had never seen rain before.

I hope the drought has now been broken
The rain is a welcome sight here too...have read it is offering some relief but not everywhere - hope you are enjoying your hobbies 😊

Still raining on and off here. There has even been rain in places that haven't seen any rain for 2 years. We are not out of the woods yet, but it is a great start.
I will pop in again from time to time, but at the moment I am so busy with other projects and really enjoying them.

The rain here in NSW is very welcome and doing a great job to ease the situation. Ive just got back from visiting my father and step mother in Myrtleford (north east Victoria) and the situation is dire there. The smoke is so thick its hard too breathe, my stepmothers two brothers had to evacuate on Friday night and there are firetrucks and army vehicles everywhere.

This is a beautiful photo Babs
January 19th, 2020  
Wow love this on black!
Great news about your rain!
January 20th, 2020  
beautiful symbol of hope. We've had a bit of rain in Adelaide too.
January 20th, 2020  
Great to see this on TT!
January 24th, 2020  
Heyyy, you're not even here and you made it to the TT! That's impressive :) Lovely to see this there.
January 24th, 2020  
@taffy @casablanca Well how about that. I only popped in for two days so far this year and one photo ends up on the TT.
Just been to the cinema with a friend and then out for lunch. David is at a bbq with his train buddies. Busy times. Very hot and humid at the moment, so lovely to cool down in the cinema.
