Speaking of rain, I've been watching the news from up north - the Townsville area has been declared a catastrophe now. Imagine having one and a half metres of rain in a week! And now they have to open the dam gates fully, so that the dam doesn't burst. Ingham had 150 ml of rain just in an hour today; that's over six inches in the old scale. There's no letup in sight with rain predicted for at least the rest of the week, along with a tornado warning. I just ... WTF? We get cyclones, not tornadoes. What is going on?
And now bushfires in Victoria as well as the ongoing Tasmanian fires.
On the opposite side of the world, people are battling extreme cold. This is a crazy world right now.
