It has been a long hot and dry summer. We've had not a single drop of rain at our house since the beginning of 2011. We have had rain predicted many times this year but it hadn't eventuated so when the weather forecasters predicted 5 days in a row of wet weather we guessed we might get one or two days worth. Last night they revised the forecast to just 2 days so we all looked at each other and thought ok that means no rain, but this morning I heard a few drops falling outside my window. I couldn't believe it!!!
Yay delicious refreshing rain, finally all the leaves outside are dust free... and everything else feels and looks clean again. We haven't had enough rain to break our dryspell but 2.4mm is a nice start.
