Climate Change and Drought in Australia reports have found climate change was driving an increase in the intensity and frequency of extremely hot days, which was prompting an increase in the severity of droughts. The Central West community have been battling it out for what has been said to be one of the worse droughts in history. Lives have been lost, farms have had to be let go and the communities itself have been working day in and day our praying for that drop of rain.
January has been the MONTH! The new year came with wet puddles, mud and big smiles! The past week starting from the 30th of January, Central West towns have received more rain then they had ever wished for. Many prayers are finally being answer!
