If we don't get some soon i may have to give up bathing for the rest of the year, and nobody wants that :help:

No worries Simo, Thursday through to Saturday is looking great, I am only a south of perth weather god these days but I think it will sneak up a bit, and a bit more around the 12th
EB things down here in the broadacre are looking pretty good, not much rain but has all come at the right time, the biggest problem is grain prices, a few gambled big on canola and may pay off because the canadians are having a rough time, wheat is woeful and the Americans are planting big, farm dams etc are pretty low though, next weeks rain should fix that a bit, the drama is long spells between rain = dry ground = minimal run off :| the rest of July is looking good on the modules so hopefully 3-4" for the month, the frost is drying out the ground pretty quick

20ml of EB for 20mm of rain, might just be worth it :poke:

Surprisingly it rained here today, which is not like the "Dry" Season. we probably only got 2mm, but it was a consistant drizzle over most the morning.

someone must be drinking EB today because we've had a couple of damn good fronts come through, one just then almost ripped the front door off it's hinges.

70mm since Thursday night :thumb: that's about 10% of our annual average, very happy.

we got 30mm, one tank is nearly full so I don't have to give up bathing just yet, but if we don't get more soon the veg patch may be barron over summer.

This photo shows my second tank overflowing for the first time which means I have 300,000L of stored rainwater to play with this year, time to get busy planting the orchard since I have the water to give it a good start.
