Went into work shutdown over Christmas / New Year to a) charge very spent batteries and b) stand and sniff the skyline for signs of smoke. It's going to be a long, hot, very trying summer in large parts of Southern Australia - so here's hoping we all get through the next few months.
Over the break I did manage to get a bit of reading done, although I will confess not as much as I'd hoped. No fires near us but the heat has been unbelievable and the ongoing drought does cut into leisure time (okay, it pretty well obliterates it completely).
