Yes it’s been raining, finally it is raining at our places and all around our district and beyond.

We’ve been in a drought situation, and now the heavens have opened up. When Graham and I checked earlier today, the was 10ml in the rain gauge, which is 9ml more than we’ve had for ages.

So, at our house, what does rain mean? It means dog’s don’t want to go outside if it’s pelting down. It means the formerly dug-up dirt backyard turns into mud, it means mud gets tracked in on muddy paws, and it means the grass mi8ght actually turn into something resembling a lawn.

It means shivering Pharaoh Hounds, and Schnauzers with damp beards and legs. But most importantly of all, it means the drought might be broken and the farmers around here can plant their seed and have it grow.

We’re not formers, but there’s farms all around us, and if it’s good for the farmers, it’s good for the whole Mallala district.
