We have had the occasional forecast of rain but it has come to nothing until this.
New South Wales has been in the same situation and yesterday we read of floods in Sydney but it looks like our rain will just be steady.
It is wonderful not to have to do watering to keep everything alive. It won't be enough to break the drought for the farmers but it is so very welcome.
The temperature has dropped as well. In the past weeks it has usually been over 30 degrees whereas the forecast for the next couple of days is in the early 20's. At the moment the forecast is for light rain on Monday and Tuesday, fine on Wednesday (for my move) then rain again for Thursday to Sunday which would include the purchasers moving in on Friday. We have often had these forecasts over summer and they have come to nothing. Anyway, although the rain is much needed I have my fingers crossed for a fine day on Wednesday and, hopefully, Friday as well.
