The Longest/Shortest Day of The Year

Today is the longest day of the year in Australia. I guess that means it is the shortest day for my northern hemisphere friends. It is a comfortable 24°C, the cicadas are finishing their song for the day, the sky is turning red and people are out for their evening walk.  It is hard to imagine that just a few days ago, it snowed in the highlands, it flooded in Western Australia and Queensland, and Melbourne was hit be a violent thunderstorm that caused much damage.  While the UK and Europe are snowed under and people cannot get home for Christmas, Israel has had the worst bush fires on record.   And I still hear people say that Global Warming is a myth.  Whether it is caused be man or is just a freak of nature, it doesn’t matter.  It is happening.

Now, all we need is a way for all that snow to be transported to those places that are still in drought… 🙂

For us here down-under, it now starts to get closer to winter, but for my Northern Hemisphere friends, your days will get longer, for the next 6 months anyway.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all.
