*******Hooray it's raining and I mean REAL rain not just a little spit here and there, it has rained pretty solidly all night and this morning and by the looks of the weather forecast it is going to continue to at least tomorrow. Anyone who knows me knows I am not a big fan of rainy days, it can be a little depressing, however down here we are soooooo much in need for some good solid rain to fill our dams up and water our poor gardens, that even I wouldn't dare to complain!!! Where I live in Brisbane we have been on severe water restrictions for at least 12 months, at the moment this means we have to carefully watch what water we use - 4 min showers only; no watering the garden; no washing the cars etc etc. On hot summer days our kids can't play under sprinklers etc anymore. Many of us have started buying water tanks for our backyards so that the rain we do get isn't wasted and then we are able to do those little things we have all taken for granted for years, but we still have to be careful because without more rain that water in our tanks doesn't last forever. On hot summer days our kids can't play under sprinklers etc anymore.
