May as well start talking about the dry season which pretty much started after TC Debbie's dregs went through here. Just 4.0mm for April so far after 351mm last month.

Yay. I am not alone. I thought CQ had evacuated. grin

Don't you mean the continuing dry season? One rain event for an entire summer does not a drought break. I had been so hopeful after the deluge we got but since then nothing.

We did have rain about a week ago. I could hear it on the roof but it was so fine that you couldn't see it. Only reason you could hear it was the wind that was pushing it.

I am waiting for it to be a bit cooler before I take the chainsaw to the dead tree bits.

Yeah could have statted the dry season thread a month ago. I'll get more dew in the gauge next month than the rain I received this month.

It is raining. Maybe the weather gods read my whine? Not expecting a lot but something is better than nothing.

If you put up a dew fence you'll get enough for a row or radishes at the very least.

That is because the cyclone was an anomalous event.

I still believe we have been in a dry type situation for several years now. It has only been a few anomalous events that get us through.

I was going to put up a bee hive for some honey dews.

That cold air has pushed through Bundy overnight. Should be quite brisk once the sun sets tonight.

I just hope this series of dry years breaks soon. We did not get even one storm in the season. Just the very edge of a couple. Without those and the occasional bit of rain we did get we would be buying water regularly.

Many people down here were buying it in often. I might look at putting in an extra tank yet but without rainfall to fill it........... I already have 3 for the house and we are careful with water usage.

Looks like we aren't moving house is worth $25,000 less in 6 years than what was paid for it.

Unless the market changes...

I am loving the chillier weather. The dogs aren't so glad to see it though.

Far too warm at night for May. So far every day and night has been above average.

Wind feels cool though.
