Precious rain

All Queenslanders are in joyful mood today, following an overnight rain which brought 30-50 mm of water to most Southeast Queensland localities. It was said to be the heaviest rainfall recorded over the past two years. More rain is expected for today and tomorrow.

Brisbane had only 2 mm (i.e. zero) of rain for the whole of April. Since late May though, things seeme to have been changing for the better (some say El Nino is being replaced by La Nina, whatever that means).

Our water tank is now almost half full.
