Woooohoooo It's Raining
Late yesterday afternoon Sydney got a lashing. Loads of lightning, thunder and RAIN. Big fat raindrops which I stood in until I got cold. And it wasn't just a passing afternoon thunderstorm, the rain continued overnight and it's still raining now. We can't say it's broken the drought. We'd probably need a straight month of this before that could happen. Let's keep our fingers crossed it can become reality.

The man I last spoke about who was missing in the area where we spent last Easter was found, dead at the bottom of a deep gorge. He was 38 and married and from Sydney. Authorities say he probably died that first night - it was bitterly cold that night on Good Friday and it's impossible to imagine how a seriously injured person would have been able to survive such extreme conditions. My thoughts are with his family and friends.
