Welcome rain

25mm so far today at 1600. Enough to wash all the dust off the roof into the tank. Adds flavour.

Ditto PM - 34mm between 2pm and 4pm over this side. The rub now is that humidity, according to Metservice is 99%!!

Damned humidity makes it all so uncomfortable. Hasn't cooled down any here.

At least the grass won't brown off - just enough moisture today to keep things ticking over. Still nicely green here, 2-4Km nearer town further east away from the hills is a whole different story.

And I now won't have to daily water the earth peg for my portable electric fence unit whilst the cows are on the long acre. If I forget to empty a milk bottle of water over it, the ground is so dry the zapping power output drops and the buggers keep crashing the hot wire.
