10 signs of drought

  1. Blue sky does not cheer the heart
  2. Grass is brown
  3. Plants yellow and wilt
  4. Dams hold nothing but a dribble of muddy water
  5. The earth gapes with deep cracks
  6. Clouds elicit excited phone calls 'just to point them out'
  7. Prayer for rain calls forth tears of desperation
  8. Black clouds that produce no rain result in heavy hearts
  9. Any rainfall anywhere in the country is reported on national television
  10. No one dares whisper that rain ruined their wedding day

Are you still in a drought? I thought you had some relief? I guess not. It must seem very weird to have all that water around you and be so dry!

Will you get the rain over the winter?

There has, thankfully, been quite a bit of rain across a lot of Australia over the weekend. All the internet news sites have reports about it!

Sadly not much of it reached Tasmania. We have had 2.6mm of rain in the last month. Last year we had 76mm of rain at the same time.

Tassie usually gets winter rain (the north of Australia has summer rain), so we're all hoping and praying that we really DO get some! Then I'll be bawling my eyes out. Right now I'm just pleading for water to fall from the sky.
