Cleaning....


Decided to try and start cleaning the dirt from the chookshed..... Not sure why it will probably be pointless but it's been good so far and a friend helped me with some it sure got me motivated..... It even smells clean in there......

Rain.........

Wow what a contrast of weekends.......
Last weekend dust storms 38-39 deg temps
this weekend rain........real rain...........useful rain.........
I had heard it raining during the night but to finally get up and go to the rain gauge and find it almost full...........(its very old fashined and an old Fowler jar but then I tip it into a measure that I keep inside)..............to measure 83mm of rain.........water everywhere........OMG SO EXCITED
pretty sloppy feeding the calves........
the house dam is full and so are all the other ones I could get to..........
had to move the cows to some hay...........they still need to be fed.....along with everything else.........I had so much fun out in the mud checking everything.........clothes splattered with mud..........yippee
another full dam.........so windy yesterday..........
I was riding around on the bike with a jumper and coat on all day..........and got the big doona out last night...........snuggled up in bed was so good......
summer is gone and autumn is here........
the calves yards had water front views all day.............
but sadly the wind was so strong it was picking up dust in some paddocks yesterday afternoon............so I'm still not cleaning............
BUT hopefully this is the beginning of the end for the drought.............its gone on for way too long...........but as you can see we have have nothing on the ground so its got to start from scratch in many places.............
BUT its a start and restores hope to many.............

Dust Storm

I know that last post was a dust storm but this one is from Friday arvo
no warning at all...........no "areas of raised dust" forecast
See in the middle just above the trees.........that was the start of the dust storm........it goes almost all the way across the pic..............
18 mins later
the dark different purple down low is all dust..........it just had shadows on it.........
another 20 mins later

the power in this was amazing.............completely still before it hit...........
the aftermath.............
the bathroom window and door were open...........
even with the rest of the house closed it still seeps in everywhere............
this one is probably the second worst one I think............
we've had dust storms from every directions now during the drought......
Catch you later........
