(Hope not another double post, internet keeps cutting out for the last few days.)

Last four days has been 7mm, 58mm, 7mm and 36mm.
Seems more reliable here, Scott, I always breathe a sigh of relief when the SE's kick in, some breeze, some rain, cooler and lotsa working time outside.
Although, right now quite windy and rather frequent showers with it so staying indoors, been drenched once today just going down to his shed to check how he's doing fixing my rock tumbler and mini drill press. smile
Am delighted to see the beaucarnea flowering, ponytail palm, for the first time, I planted it around 30 years ago from a little potplant.

Ronfishes, it's about ten feet tall with about 3 feet of plume above. Had I only known, seeing from images online of others, I wish I'd planted many more. Supposedly it should bloom every year now. I knew there was a reason I never sold this place...

That bad a day, huh, Ron? smile But then I get seasick easily - have patience.

Still blustery, still drippy.

Pretty nice weather here now too. No rain of course, not even a hint, even with lovely big puffy clouds floating this way.

I'll start whinging myself, when the winds have dried the grass, and start picking up dead grass, grit and miniscule pebbles, and rotating it all into my house in the form of whirly winds. The thing I like least about the dry season.

Nice one dormant.

Yep still drippling down, at least the grass will green up again.

The rain is absolutely pelting down here the last 25 mins,
Looking at the nylex with the dolphin torch, looks like about 35mm so far today.

just tipped out 70 on the dot. Quite impressive. Actually it feels more like the effect of a trough moving onshore than the effect of SE stream showers

I made a neat 50 from 4pm yesterday through to 6am this morning. Still raining at similar rate and colours keep coming on the radar

After fearing a near drought behind Debbie we are seemingly blessed with make-up rain smile

Sighs, Scott, ya had to ask. Honoured as I am to be asked, of course. Had to register at imagebank. I rotated the image in Photoshop but it uploaded sideways, tried again and gave up, here it is as is.
