Over the past three days we have had 31.5 mm of rain. The bushfire threat has finally eased. All the fires except one have been contained. Finally we can start returning to a normal life.
I'm reveling in the damp, cold weather. Look at this lovely misty sky. This photo is taken from my front door.
I went looking for some puddles to show you but the earth is still so dry that all the rain is soaked away immediately. So I found a puddle in this bit of bark
and in this leaf.
And here are some raindrops!
The garden and the bush are already looking better and the air is heavy with the smell of eucalyptus. Bliss!
