Rain == “bad weather”
What’s with the persistent glass-half-full coverage of weather in the media (particularly when it comes to covering glass-filling rain)?
Sure, flooding and danger are important and newsworthy, but people, we’ve been in drought for years. Sydney’s water storage was literally half-full last week. This rain will mean we can drink, wash, keep gardens growing, and yes, flush. Maybe for a year or two, until the next big downfall.
It’s really not a bad thing, and it would be nice if the news coverage at least mentioned that rather than accentuating the negative.
