It rained this morning.

You are mistaken, more like a fine mist in the CBD. Didn't even register in the rain gauge

Its that rain and a drop in temps on the horizon? Will believe it when it happens! Just a day or so not having to water the garden would be lovely. What is nice though is eating with the tribe outside and the beautiful temperatures late at night. Was in Auckland this week, coming back to Christchurch was actually hotter!

We had a couple of drops for a sun shower this afternoon. Probably evaporated instantly.

Raining in Trentham

Not much in Redwood. Its only around 15C though. Got the house open to try and cool it down from days and days of hot temps. Hopefully we get a really good dump of rain. Sky is grey enough.

It. is pouring here atm:D

samanya, Dec 13, 7:31pm
Here too, I'm ecstatic.
My garden has perked up instead of looking rather 'manky/sad' . I have rainwater storage but I save it for the vege garden & my rainwater tanks are filling up . I have to keep going out & getting wet to pump the water to my big rainwater tank but this means that I will have enough to use sparingly over the summer. bring it on!
Whoo Hoo . thanks mother nature

Very heavy and has been for around 3 hours here. Drove out of town this afternoon and met it coming. Gosh, its a total drenching, perfect for the garden.
