Learn from bad weather

IT'S been quite a fortnight for weather extremes. The first two weeks of the new decade have seen flooding, snow and ice, before many households were left without running water.

We've been rained out, snowed under and run dry. Is there anything more the elements can throw at us?

Let's hope that lessons are learned from recent problems and that the authorities are better prepared the next time around.
