Searing heat in Melbourne, flash floods in Toowoomba, dust storm in Onslow, firestorms near Sydney. Welcome to Australia, mate.
In a country with one of the most erratic weather systems in the world, disaster recovery should be no less of a requirement for everyone. One hour it gets really hot, the next hour it gets really cold for reasons that make science scratch its head. If there are people who take the worst of Mother Nature on a frequent basis, it has to be Australians.
