We are not the only ones who enjoy the warmth and sunshine.
Unfortunately, some of our fellow travelers on the path of fine weather cheer are far from being good bedfellows.
Put simply, while the cold and wet weather is away, millions-upon-millions of mice will play.
IN OTHER NEWS:
Most of us would have seen the footage over the past few months of the grim reality of the terrible mice plague hitting western regions of NSW.
It can be just like watching a pulsating, rumbling giant grey carpet, but for those affected the plague has resulted in considerable destruction.
Every one of the almost incalculable number have a ravenous appetite, which has meant nothing has been safe - from grain stored in silos to even the fabric of many farmhouses.
And on top of that, many have told of the nauseating, overwhelming stench left in their wake as the pests swarm through on an almost Biblical scale.
It's a natural disaster that we are thankful we haven't had to endure, or at least that's what we might have thought.
Not too far from Albury-Wodonga though landholders have been subjected to a similar invasion, even if not to the extent of those areas hit hard.
For Ray Hamilton, who farms a property between Rand and Urana, it has meant spending almost $1000 on baits to keep the vermin under control in the house and his sheds.
He scoops up to 40 mice out of the pool every night and the traps, he says, are constantly going off.
While he can see the funny side of things closer to home, that doesn't take away from the natural concern for the situation out in the paddocks.
The numbers, he says, could very well be significantly higher in the open, which is a concern given croppers are about to get sowing.
Farmers always need a good seasonal break through decent mid- to late-autumn rainfall.
But here's hoping it arrives soon for another equally good reason - to drown those pests in their burrows and put an end to the plague.
