And then the rain came

Since my last post a few days ago we’ve had rain, rain and more rain, consisting of  steady light rain petering down to a guti (a fine drizzle) interspersed with several heavy downpours.  My garden is soaking it up!   Or should I say, has soaked it up.  It’s been dry today.  In fact the sun shone for 10 minutes or so!   In these last three days we’ve had 165mm.  I recorded 14mm at the beginning of Feb, giving a grand total of 179mm so far for Feb.  Some areas had far more

Our rain, in the Gauteng area, comes from the Vaal Dam which, is predicted to be at 100% capacity by Sunday.  Surely water restrictions will finally be lifted!  Hope so.
