RAIN!



I was going to run out and take a photo of my rain guage, but it's such a cold and wet day, I'm not dashing out there with my camera. But I can tell you we had 68mm in the last 24 hours! FANTASTIC!!

But, do not be alarmed! The pictures I've posted are from an amazing day in June, 2005, when Caba received over 300mm in about 12 hours. It was pretty scary for a while ( that's my front yard ) and the water was lapping at the barracade I'd built across the garage entrance. But then we cleared the drains up and down the street, and the water was able to drain away.However, other streets in town were not so lucky......

Charmaine says....Yes Rain....but what a waste of so much of this beautiful liquid as it washes down the drains!....Us Sydney siders have been having huge downpours for about a month now ,and it too seems not to be all reaching the right spots.

As you know, we're having lots of lovely rain here in Sydney as well and our dams are finally filling up. Our gardens are loving it.

I think we all have the same idea this morning - let's get on the computer while it's pouring with rain outside. Hi Charmaine!
