Santa set for incredible journey

CHRISTMAS is only one sleep away and Santa is set to leave the North Pole, putting everything on track for tomorrow’s celebrations.

Weather conditions are predicted to be pleasant for tomorrow, and Clarence Valley residents are already embracing the festive spirit.

Clarence Consultants director Michael Brennan got into the Christmas spirit and fulfilled a long-term dream of driving his tractor to work.

Mr Brennan drove his decorated tractor to Grafton from his Southgate property with Christmas gifts loaded on the back.

A spokesperson from the Weather Channel said the Clarence Valley could expect a warm Christmas Day with temperatures expected to reach 33 degrees.

“Friday should bring north-easterly winds and overcast conditions with a shower or two predicted for the afternoon,” he said.

“Boxing Day and Sunday should see increased shower activity as a rain band moves across the Clarence Valley area causing temperatures to come down to a maximum of 28 degrees.”

Kids can track Santa’s whereabouts tonight on Google earth or visit www.noradsanta.org to see Santa’s activity and get all the latest updates from the North Pole.
