The wettest June is likly to be followed by a very wet July. With less than a week into the montyh weather forecasters are predicting that in may places a month’s worth of rain will fall in a single day – today or tomorrow. July averages 60cm of rain. Some places will get that in a month; there will be more flooding and people will have to take great care to protect their property and their lives.
As I look out side my window I see and hear the rain fall, quickly and fully. The roads are full of puddles and rain is falling on puddles, making patterns and bubbles. I hope that the politicians and policy makers will see the puddles, patterns and bubbles in the pattern of our weather.
