Grey Skies and Rain

As you know I am not posting regularly at the moment, but I had to drop in and post this photo taken yesterday afternoon on my way to visit a friend.

It is so good to be able to post a grey sky photo. After so many smoky skies we have had lately since the bushfire disaster here in Australia began you can't imagine how nice it is to be able to see rain filled skies.

We even had 3 mm rain last night and that is the most rain we have had since the beginning of October last year.

Hopefully there is more rain up there and fingers crossed some of the rain is falling on the bushfire affected areas.

The temperature has dropped at the moment, but I believe it is short-lived and tomorrow we could be back to hot days again.

This is a panorama of my favourite tree and the mangrove area of the beach at low tide. You can also the defunct oyster beds off in the distance.

I have been popping in and checking out your photos occasionally but haven't commented much.

Slowly catching up on some of my many projects.

I will be back again later in the year.
Nice to see you again Babs! Such a beautiful pano of this lovely scene Hoping that you soon get the much needed rain.

Great pano. It's great that you finally have some rain! Not much, but you have to start somewhere.
January 9th, 2020  
The irony of it ... I’m getting so tired of the grey and wet...and you’re craving it. Great shot, love the starkness of it
January 9th, 2020  
Some good news at last Babs, lets hope its the start of much more to come, one of my relative lives just outside Nowra NSW and has lost his farm but all are safe:)
January 9th, 2020  
It sure was nice to see rainy skies rather than Smokey skies. Unfortunately we had very little rain down here
January 9th, 2020  
Beautiful panorama! And happy to hear you finally had some rain. Hope it helps and that more rain comes your way!

January 9th, 2020  
Lovely pano Babs, let's hope that there is more rain coming :)
January 9th, 2020  
So good to see your post and rejoice with you in the grey skies. (That is something I don't say very often). The plain grey backdrop works perfect with your mangrove beach.

Gorgeous panorama, especially to see wet looking grey skies up there and not smoke. So nice to see you
January 9th, 2020  
We have had lots of rain & grey skies & that is exactly what you need! I would gladly share with you!
January 9th, 2020

@ludwigsdiana @peadar @stray_shooter @koalagardens @happysnaps @zeezee @julzmaioro @angelar @haskar @momamo @kjarn @ingrid01 @beryl @cruiser @annied @merrelyn @helenhall @gijsje @pamknowler @carolmw @casablanca @carole_sandford @angelikavr @ghost13 @seattlite @robz Thanks. The rain didn't do much for us though. It has been so hot again here today and I don't see an end to the bushfire situation in the near future sadly.
I spoke to my friend in Mittagong this afternoon and people are being evacuated to there from the surrounding areas that are affected by fires. Her son was evacuated from Berrima last weekend but he is back home again now. Sadly he lives on the edge of bushland and has had to bury several animals and birds that have died in his garden escaping the fires.

@maggiemae I did know about the magnified sunset photo being on the TT, but when I looked I noticed that the Solarized Opera House was on there too the following week.

@pcoulson Oh Peter, how sad your relative has lost his farm. That area is really bad at the moment. My pal Jo lives in Mittagong and I spoke to her today. People are being evacuated there from the surrounding areas at the moment, but if the fire goes through there now, everyone is going to be trapped. The situation is so bad and it won't get any better until we have some decent rain.

There are four fires all the way down the east coast from Singleton down to Bega that are on the verge of merging together. God knows what will happen if that occurs.

Great panorama. Nice to see you again. Fav. Praying for Australia.
January 10th, 2020  
Great news let more rain come your way
January 11th, 2020  
Happy to read that you had a bit of rain , thinking if you.
January 11th, 2020  
So thankful you’ve had some rain. I will be happy to see your posts when you stop by.
January 12th, 2020  
So happy for you all!

This is an unusual sight for you. I hope you get enough rain to deal with the wildfires, but not enough to cause floods!

@fishers Thanks, the rain is very welcome. Steady falls where I live but some areas have had flash flooding. Some parts of Australia have had the first rain for two years.

@onewing

An incredible change. Just saw film on the TV news of a hail storm in Australia with hailstones the size of golf balls - but at least the rain must have helped with the wildfires.
