Default Heaven!! Its grey wet cold and raining.



Who got rain then?? Just south of Noosa we got steady stuff during the night, hardly enough to kill a drought but the air is fresh, the grass is already slightly greener which shows just how brown it was, the dust that has plagued us for months has stopped dead, for a while the bushfire risk will be low.

Long may it continue, well at least till my next concrete pour

Its absolutely bucketing down here on the Gold Coast. Nice rain too, started off light to dampen down and wet the soil, but we had continuous steady rain hrough the night.

Never thought I'd see the day but yes, 8 months here and I was very happy to see the rain. Theres been a constant smell of fire here for the last week or two, which feels quite menacing (and gives my 6 year old nightmares) hurray for the rain, it feels like October!

Funny thing is up here everyone has prayed for rain for at least a month or so [since tanks started running dry] We called in the pub tonight and the topic of conversation was not "thank the lord it's raining" it was "bloody grass is gonna grow now" and they say poms whinge!
