Red sky in the morning - will the drought break?

Not yet, alas.  This was the display yesterday morning, looking over Island Bay, past Taputeranga, to Baring Head.  Like fireworks, but according to the sayings this brilliant colour is associated with rain.

There are clouds, there was a little drizzle and rain, but it is fine again - real rain is yet to come.  How dependent we are on nature.  How beautiful it is regardless.  How small we are in the scheme of things, really.
