the psychology of rain
didn't really believe in this...but, here we are. we have had zero rain. and everyone is starting to get stressed and grumpy. i read somewhere recently that australians have recently changed how they feel about rain, given the drought. where we used to get annoyed at the inconvenience, now we enjoy it. it is so dry here and the animals are running out of food and water. we have lost quite a few lambing ewes because of it. i have found myself praying for rain - it is getting pretty desperate. although i also have been thinking about the people over east who have gone 5 years without rain. hopefully we get a break sometime soon.
