Good news about "the big wet"

The BBC is reporting that Australia's winter wheat crop could double.

When I was in Griffith I spent time with a friend who was a "dry area farmer" (the technical definition of a wheat farmer). He had to get out of it because of, well, the complete lack of water.

It may be annoying here on the coast getting soaked and blown around these days, but I'm glad that enough of the wet stuff made it inland to make some difference.
