It’s hard to imagine it’s Australia Day as I look out the window and even at this hour, it’s still dark here due to the dense rain clouds that appear to have taken up residency in our valley.
Memories of waking up to sunrises such as this seem almost surreal. Looking out over the Pacific Ocean from my bedroom balcony, watching the sun slowing rise, a thing of the past.
It’s so hard to imagine now as I hear the radio’s severe weather warnings for New York and Boston. They’re expecting a major snow storm along with high winds, possibly the worst storm they’ve ever experienced.
Our thoughts and prayers are for the safety of those living there. May they come through this relatively unscathed.
And here we sit on the west coast, waiting for even A snowflake, something confirming it’s actually winter… “mum, how much longer?”
