I was sent an email today about a little Aussie who searched for, and found, relief from the heatwave in the southern states.
Koalas aren’t really fans of water, and rarely drink the stuff – they usually get all the fluid they need from eucalyptus leaves (I know this because I used to work in an animal park – in my youth). But then, 45°C will encourage even the most hydrophobic of animals to try to cool down. Thanks to whoever took these pictures and made my morning.
In other news, the rain, which as been constant, is now making an entrance through my sewing room and my spare room. The river across the road is high – but I don’t think it will break the bank on my side – as it’s already broken the bank on the other side and all the floodwater can head south, as far as I’m concerned (I’m on the north side, the river flows east). The ducks are still loving the puddles. I had to take massive detours to get to work today because of flooded roads (pictures to come). I lasted two hours at work before deciding that I had more important things to do (though Oprah is pissing me off at the moment and Dr Phil didn’t have much that was interseting to say. The Arabic soap opera, however, is enthralling).
