Cooling Off

It might be snowy and cold in many parts of North America and Europe, but in Australia it is the peak of summer these days. It seems southern Australia is especially hot and dry—with average temperatures of 40ºC (104ºF) and up. It’s so hot in fact that our furry little friends are doing their best to stay out of the sun and find ways to cool off. This little koala apparently came onto someone’s shady back porch for a bit of relief. A tub of water was put out for him and after lapping at it for a bit, he got the right idea.

Thanks to my uncle P for sending me the story.
