Where has the sky gone?

That is what my son asked today. The temperature outside is at least 45 degrees but there is no blue sky, instead just a grey haze, with a few barely visible clouds. And a vicious wind. The papers say today it is the worst weather for fifty years, in Melbourne the hottest day ever, the highest risk of bush fires out here in country Victoria. We haven't had rain in our town for weeks. My friends in England are snowed in and freezing, like never before. This is horrible.
