We’ve had some rain!! Not a lot (about 60mL – a little over 2 inches), but with a fire still burning just up the road it was definitely needed. Other areas have had a *lot* more rain than us. After 74 days of continuous burning one of the biggest fires is now out! And the big news is all fires still burning are now contained!!!! Including the one near us.
The thing about Australia is that when we have drought, it always breaks with floods. So many areas are now underwater.
This was a bad fire season, but not our worst. We’ve had fires that have burnt larger areas, and fires that have caused more deaths. But it was a bad one nonetheless.
