In the eleven years we have lived here, never have the tops of the balcony windows become wet. I knew we would get a nice soaking rain as last night there was an easterly wind blowing and easterlies always bring good rain. I also noticed some very busy ants. Fortunately I don't have arthritis. If I did, that would have been the trifecta of confirmation of approaching rain.
What an extraordinary thing it was to get our whole balcony windows wet. Ok, an eleven year record is not a great indicator of climate change, but still.
Let us hope that tomorrow's weather in the state of New South Wales will be not as bad as forecast and the fires will not flare up as they are expected to do. Many thought our then Victorian Premier Brumby was being alarmist in 2009 when he warned the next day would be calamitous. It proved to be so. Fingers crossed for NSW tomorrow.
