Welcome to May! One third of 2022 has flown by, and today is the first day of May and the dawning of a new month. Last week I travelled to Sydney, leaving Canberra before dawn and passing Lake George on the Federal Highway at sunrise (see photo above). We get excited in Canberra when Lake George actually has water in it! It’s an inland lake that dries up during El Nino droughts and refills during La Nina flooding rains. If you look closely at the photo on the right hand side, you can see the tops of the paddock fencing that crosses over the lake. Sheep and cattle graze in those paddocks when the lake is dry. The water is shallow, and scientists believe a shift in the fault line created the lake and separated it from nearby river systems. I plan to write a lot of words in May, now the weather is cooling in Australia and being outdoors is less appealing. Do you have plans for May? Are you looking forward to a northern hemisphere summer (or a southern hemisphere winter)?
