Yay for you Hope it sticks around for you Terra Yeah Rod, I've got some showers here ... started last night ... nothing decent but it's still drizzling & will keep the grass kicking along & freshen up everything. We've now got a "green drought" situation I guess ... the paddocks have never run out of feed, & they look great, but gee the creek would look great with several inches in it, & the paddocks could do with a good soak to get a wriggle on before autumn slows the growth down. I went up to a neighbours place a few days ago to help him figure out his water situation. He lives on the headwaters of the river, & usually pumps from in front of the house. He only has a very small house tank because the river (it's North Arm Creek up here - but it becomes the Nambucca River down lower, & I refer to it as the river to distinguish it from Sullivans Creek) is almost never reduced to patches. But now it's not flowing in front of his house, & his tank was dry. Luckily we managed, with a bit of stuffing around, to get things set up so he can pump from 100 metres further up, where there is a beautiful deep hole that the water is still running into. (It's strange watching water run into the holes or wet stretches, but not to be able to see it running out of them.) I'm so grateful for my bore. You simply can't live without water.
