Bloody RAIN!

Post  Kiwisteve on Fri 13 Mar 2015, 3:51 pm

I think it's all Chook's fault. He mentioned rain in another thread.
We've had about 5 inches in 5 1/2 hours Mad

It's gotten to 7 inches of rain in 7 hours! Not raining now tho.
I'm hoping it's dry tomorrow so I can take Zoe for a ride on an alternate bike

Nah, I haven't worried about even covering the mirrors, (as my mother inlaw used to do Razz ) must be an old wives tale. Can that be verified by any wives on the forum? Very Happy ( ducking for cover)
I think my dog might a bit pissed off with me tho, he was hiding from the storm behind my chair. Until he dropped his guts affraid how much do dogs stink! He got a short shift outside!

BUMP!!

You had 7 inches that day in 7 hours.

We've had the driest year since 2008
Twice this year (May and July) we've managed to get 2 inches in a month (55mm each)
Jan and August we managed to just get 40mm, they are the only 4 months we've recorded more than a inch in a month, only 2 other months have reached 20mm
Our total for the 10 1/2 months this year is 295 mm or about 11 inches

You'd think that'd make for good riding weather, this winter was the coldest I can remember since moving to Adelaide in early 1982 and we seemed to get a lot of days where less than 0.5mm was recorded so the bike still got filthy

We're actually sitting nicely, with good rainfall and a nice mix of warm and wet days.  A hot summer is being predicted (of course, I just removed the old pool!), but we currently have full water tanks thanks to 90mm over the past two weeks. Very Happy Very Happy

I believe the saying is South Australia ...........the driest state in the driest continent . Looks like we might have restrictions again then ...............unless Mr Rann's white elephant .........sorry .........Desal plant can drag us out of it . What we really need is larger / more reservoirs , the ones we have were to suit 1950s & 60s populations & infrastructure .

If you can borrow a big truck you can take Sydney's desal plant for free.

Since it was completed it has cost $535 million to maintain in hibernation and has never produced a single drop of water.
