The rain that’s to end the drought

We had spots of rain every now and then but nothing really and according to reports, the draught has seen the lowest water levels in 25 years. Mind you, 25 years Auckland had a) way less population and b) way less Aucklanders connected to the water system – most were on tank water just like us.

Our water tank has been full over the last couple of weeks however you could tell that the soil was dry. We only had very little grass grow over the months. And even paddocks that had seen no grazing for 9 months look pretty much like 9 months ago.

I just hope we won't go from too dry to too wet. In any case we cleaned up the horse occupation-ready and the calf too. Just in case.
