Snow falls and blazing fires

Shirley Wallis from Woodford Queensland, Australia writes:

Happy 2013, John,
It’s amazing to me that your meeting has been cancelled because of snow storms. Presently in Australia two of the southern states are ablaze with bushfires. Here in Woodford we are safe and well though feeling the heat somewhat. Today’s maximum was 33o C

We are looking for rain as it’s becoming very dry. For the last two years we have had floods in January.”That’s Australia”!

Our first meeting for the year is to be 4th February. Good Luck with your excellent book! Hope sales go through the roof!
