Sometimes circumstances become more evident from photos that walking around with ones eyes closed. The grass is so dry and the creek has not flowed for months. We have had falls of rain, but not sufficient to change the conditions of the ground.

One hot day, does not make a summer. Observatory Hill in Sydney recorded the hottest day since 1939 and the hottest day ever. Luckily, it was not as hot here. It reached about 39 degrees Celsius (or approximately 101 degrees Fahrenheit) I was hot, and decided not to take the dogs out on their walk.
