Snow and drought

Post by Stephen Whiteside » Fri Aug 31, 2018 7:30 am

I have been feeling a little uncomfortable lately posting poems about the relatively frivolous subjects of snow and skiing while I know other ABPA members are having to live through the agony of drought. The reality is, though, that this year is a bumper snow season, and that subject itself is now in the news, such as this article on the ABC website:

....and this is Australia.

Somewhere there is floods, fire, famine, provision, snow, bumper crop and lean.
All at the same time!

True indeed!

Someone once said it was a land of "drought and flooding rains" - and it is everything else as well!

Drought brings hardship but so does incessant cold - and our southern states have had plenty of that this winter!
