You are finally getting some much delayed rain. Maybe the draught if finally over in Australia? Glad your cricket team is boycotting playing in Pakistan!
That is a male Marty, it has the V carapace [spelling??]
We don't need the rain up here at the top end, in fact 30% of Queensland is still under water. What water that doesn't flow in to the gulf is making it's way down through the centre of the continent and will reach lake Ayre in South Australia in a month or two. The have actually put out a flood warning for the lake even though it hasn't rained there for many years.
They have had rain and some snow in Victoria where the bush fires are and the pressure has eased. Many thanks to the Americans and Canadians who came down to help us.
