Both can be nice. A cozy fire to cuddle by or for cooking on. Rain to make things grow and at times to cool things down.

To me though it seams we either get to much of one or not enough of it when we need it. Like when the weatherperson says there will only be a 10% chance of rain so we go outside to play and guess what? We end up under that 10%. Than it has been dry for the last four weeks and our lawns and gardens are showing it and we could use a half inch ( 1.5cm) of rain over say a couple of hours and we get 3 inches (8cm) in an hour. Than what about those wild fires where they could use a good soaking rain and all they get is a drizzle for 10 minute that really helps. Oh I bet you can think of more along the same line so I will leave it at that.

Now my question to all the so called brains out there is what can we do about this.

Fire and rain
Whether I am one of the brains "out there", I do not know...but I would like to throw a spanner in the works here.
No, there is nothing one can do about it other than to always be prepared for the unexpected. When it is a summer rainfall area, who cares getting wet aswater will be cooling in the heat. When it is a winter rainfall area, never leave the house without an umbrella.
Educate the population about being careful to minimise bush fires. If it is an act of God, hopefully fire roads have been built in order to contain the fire.
