Just keeps raining, non stop drizzle pretty much since yesterday. Plus it pissed down in the early hours this morning and again this afternoon giving us over 120mm since Sunday when it began.

Looking at my rain records for the year, that's the best rainfall event all year and the only one to come close was spread out over about ten days, way, way back in Febuary.

Everything is completely soaked, including a couple of miserable looking donkeys and the creek has just started to flow again for the first time in four months.

This is also the first drop of rain since 23 of June, when we had a miserable 16mm. The total rainfall on the farm for this year has been only 548mm.

Anyway i miss out on being able to go to work but have been keeping myself busy cleaning out the shed and fiddling with the new poot, best of all slipping on the gumboots for some puddle jumping fun with the monkeyboy.

What a pity about your water purchase but hey, in the absence of M and R visiting you you needed an alternative rain maker.

It looks delightful up there and Monkeyboy looks like he's having a blast. I'd love to join him stomping in the puddles.
