Just to give me a good dose of the irrits hubby and I went for a picnic today. 15k from home.

Driving into the park we were met with very large pools of water collected on the side of the road. Debris washed 1/4 of the way across it. Went for about 1k.

It is still so bloody dry here. The grass is dead. It only got one mowing since about last year. Son is happy as it is his job to mow it. Jeez, did I get dudded on the reduced board for labour.

The forecast is such a tease. I think some will have given up on it raining this summer now. It is like the dry started several years ago and is yet to let go.

Need 10.6mm to fall otherwise it will be the driest February on record for Yeppoon.

Note records go back to 1994 so I doubt it really is the driest...

Even with the sprinkler system connected to the sand spear, there are still dry spots on the lawn. I'm glad we have this though.

Someone pinch me. I must be dreaming. I am sure that I hear rain on the roof and can smell it.

Nothing to get too excited by the looks. If I am lucky I will get enough to keep some plants going before fully carking it. Put an inch into the tanks if I am really lucky.

I noticed that as it headed our way the yellow died out. Of course it reappears after missing our place. But I am happy to have an sprinkle I can get.

Given up on thinking it will rain even when surrounded by storm cells like today. It seems we can't pull a trick this season. Nothing even in the long range forecasts to get our hopes up. I'm guessing one or two bursts from the monsoon before it retreats north again to give us a chance at something. Haha we will probably end up getting more rain over winter this year.
