It's Raining

For the first time in many many months our tank is overflowing. What a wonderful sight.

In the past 24 hours we have had 44mls. Many areas have had even more. Nothing nicer than listening to rain on our tin roof. Even more enjoyable when it hasn't rained like that for so long.

It began raining at about 2 o'clock last night and has only just stopped. Good steady constant rain. Just what we need. Hopefully this will get a few local rivers running. Our local rivers haven't ran in over two years. Our local reservoir is currently at 2.3%.

Enjoy the puddles.

Hi Dawn
Love reading your blog. Wonderful news about the rain. Have you taken photos?
Hope you get good follow-up rain
We are still waiting in Brisbane (although cloudy today) to get some of this wonderful rain.
