The hills of Southern Hawkes Bay are as dry as I have seen them in the 8 summers I've lived here. I took these photos on Monday. No significant rain is expected until March. Everything will, however, survive. Rain will come. No one will starve or die for lack of water. For that we should all be very thankful because there are many in the world who this very year, this very month, this very week, this very day will die because they have no water (and many more will die because they have no potable water).
