Kia Ora David,
Glad to hear your feet are dry (ish). Taking the positive out of the whole thing is hopefully less bush fires.
We are apparently heading for another drought this summer but had a dumping of snow two weeks ago! In October! In Christchurch! Which is like expecting snow in Melbourne at this time of year. Extreme weather all round.
Hubby and I heading to Bathurst either next year or the one after to watch those cars go round and round. We can set a goal to catch up for a cold one.
