#457 This dry land has some sunshine with GizzA Creations

Feeling very patriotic about my country Australia, I have to write about some places that have received rain for the first time in over seven years. Friends called me a few days ago excited that the rains had arrived. Could you imagine seven years without rain!!?  Pretty hard to imagine. Their young children were terrified at what was coming down and hitting them on the face. To us it is common, every so many days it hits our roofs, our cars, our face as we walk. It is wet and annoying but needed. It is known as rain water. The children were so terrified, they screamed all the way to their parents thinking that the heavens were indeed falling on them. I know that is hard to believe but there are places in Australia that have not seen rain for some time.

In 2010, South East of Australia was in the grip of “the big dry” or what was called the “millennium drought” - billed as the worst drought since European settlement. Dams across the Murray-Darling Basin were down to only 25% of capacity. Then the floods came, followed by yet more floods. In some areas the dams are now almost 100% full. The first time in 8 years. Several thousands of gigalitres have been released. Government has spent billions of dollars trying to prepare Australia for the next dry, but the complexity of droughts means we have little hope of being ready. If you can imagine, Entire floodplain forests died along the rivers of the Murray-Darling Basin; for many of them, the drought was just the final straw.  The dry not only affects farmers but our livestock, our wildlife and from the recent droughts, some species of animals have disappeared. Whilst Australia they say is a great place to live, it also has it underlying problems and that is the millennium droughts that affect us.
