The Breaking of the Drought!

                                            Press photograph


She'd heard of rain but never felt it!
She'd dreamed of rain but never smelt it!
Then they received a Christmas gift
Giving New South Wales a lift!
The Farmers, who'd been waiting, waiting
All at once were celebrating!
Like pigs they rolled about in mud
Welcoming the flowing flood.
Little children splashed and shouted!
Greenery shot up and sprouted!
Other places may be dry;
They watched the storm clouds passing by.
Other years may scorch and burn,
But here they've seen the rain return.
Plant the crops without a fear!
Happy New Year! Happy New Year!

What good news! We're buried in snow in My Muskoka and understand about too much, or too little of anything!

A fascinating textural photo after the rain, looking like a rice paddy. But what is the little figure in the top left hand corner, I wonder.
