91ml.........yippee........

it's raining and raining and raining and raining................2inchs (50ml) while I was at work yesterday...........took twice as long to get home after work.............the car is covered in mud..........but once home before I went to bed we had another 1 1/2 inchs...........not much over night so the total is 365 points(91ml).........fantastic start to summer for us here with no crop but if you are still harvesting and most in our area are only 1/2 way thru (like dh's harvest contracting job) there will be downgrades of grain etc now...............they are also forecasting wet weather for a few days so it will be awhile before harvest can resume...............I have a day off today and I am not going to battle the road and get bogged..........and we still have more rain forecast so will see what happens with that..............

.........take care til next time.....Chookyblue.........

  2. Wahoo (although I do feel sorry for the ones with crops still in). Don't you just love the rain when you've lived through drought. I get so non-plussed everytime someone here on the coast says they wish the rain would stop. Crazy people. So yippee and wahoo and enjoy! Cherrie

  5. Yay for the rain! It's stopped here this morning, but apparently we're due for more this afternoon! We didn't get all of the harvesting done (not that there was much to do!) - but we're loving the rain anyways! Just hope that it dries out enough down in NSW for the movers to get the truck into shift our gear into the new house!!! (I don't think they've had as much down there though.) We have had 66ml in the last few days. Glad that you've gotten some much needed rain too :)

  6. Woohoo for you. Only 25mls here so far but we are cheering too. Lucky enough that our crop is sooo late that this rain is actually a help. Go figure!!!! Wonderful not to be feeding this year.

  8. Great rain there! we had about 36ml here and it is still overcast today.
    It is a hard call for those whose harvest is delayed and will be down graded.....BUT gosh the rain is wonderful!

  12. Fabulous...hope your tanks are all full. It is drizzle here in Melbourne the last couple of nights
    but I keep praying for lots of safe and steady rain.
    Those heavy drops that really go into the soil came in the last lot we had and it was just wonderful watching it.
    I have tomatoes and basil in a long rectangular pot and they are growing so well. The vegetable and 'erb garden is even beginning to function again...after we had a snail slaughter. Oh so many.
    I had newspaper and all the spare pots on one beg to try and kill that horrible weed that has bulbs so that bed has been out of action for two years but I think it has also been a home for snails.

  13. I heard about that rain from my daughter in Australia. She has no crops but was glad for her garden and tank getting filled.
    Enjoy your day off.

  17. Wow, I was happy that we had 1.25mls overnight plus a lovely light show, just enough to dampen the garden.

  20. Hope the rain doesn't hurt the crops too much. Hope you can sew while you stay out of the rain.

  21. Rain during harvest, not much fun. This year we got done the day before several days of rain. People here are still harvesting when the ground is froze. (too muddy to drive on unless it's froze). Rain makes everything grow but sometimes the timing is just not good!
