There was a bit of relief from the smoke of the coal mine fire today with a fresh wind change, but just a few spots of rain to tease us. There is no green anywhere around the hills and we have started feeding the hay we need for Winter to the cows.
This evening I drafted sheep for shearing tomorrow in clouds of dust, and it was still quite hot out of the wind in the yards. It has been a harsh Summer and there are places much worse off than here, so roll on the Autumn break, we are ready for you! At least my Frangipani doesn't mind the heat.
