I think we have all seen in summer what it can be like in Australia.
Here in Sydney we have had so little rain, and a few years ago we could not even use the hose.

It seems rain is becoming rare, esp for us.
This is the only year I have ever seen it so dry.

The Farmers know only too well, and it can and does push them to the max, for their lives and the families.
Plus the Red Dust Storm we had in Sydney in 2009, now that was scary!
Western Australia, or rather Perth, always has droughts!
We have been on strict water restrictions for many years now with our dams always at around 28-32% full, I think.

am i rght? perth has a desal plant? We have one here in Adelaide, and believe it's used to top up the supply. As our population has grown and we seem to get less rain, as is usual, so many people complained about the $ spent by the gov., but all these years later, nothing said that it was a good policy.

Not on the scale you probably mean. We have had drought summers which incur hosepipe bans though.
We experienced drought weather conditions, but I can't say that I was adversely affected by them. Certainly not like others have been.

Yes. We had a 10 year drought in Victoria. There were water restrictions and half my garden died. Still it taught me to value this precious resource and be grateful for the good times when water is freely available.
