OK ... now what's wrong with this picture? Where are the hills?
Look closely ...
What is going on Ms. Weatherman? Please explain .... I mean this is the DRY tropics isn't it? We don't get rain for around nine months of the year from Autumn through to around mid-Summer!!!!
Sitting in the classroom this afternoon, working with some students ... when suddenly there was that heavenly PERFUME! Anyone who lives in a dry area will know what I mean ... there's something magical about the smell of rain when you haven't had any for months on end! It is an amazing smell! ...
But ... this is WINTER! When one of my students suddenly blurted out "It's raining, Mrs. H!", I rolled my eyes with an air of resignation ... I work with students who have learning disabilities/difficulties, so I thought it was yet another diversionary tactic! No ma'am! It was rain.
Now, I don't mean to go on ... and on ... and on! But this is just so weird!!! Lovely ... but weird!
Usually this is the middle of our 'dry' season ... we don't really have four seasons in my part of the world. We really only have a very, very short 'wet' and a very, very long 'dry'. So rain at this time of year is quite strange.
