Finally! Rain :-)

Yippeeeee, everyone else has had storms and thunder and lightening, and rain, and hail and all sorts.  All that we have enjoyed is overcast skies, low cloud cover and threats of precipitation.

Until last night.  I woke in the night to hear it torrential outside!  This morning the rain guage read 8mm fell overnight.  For every 1mm we get, our roof collects 800litres of water.  So this  morning the tank was full.

We have pumped up a tankfull, and now it is still raining...I am very thankful for the tankfull!  it helps in the hot summer months to have water to fall back on!

Rain Gods, thank you!
