God made rainy days so gardeners could get the housework done. 



The thunder roared. The lightning flashed and when it started raining this morning, it REALLY rained.

Heavy, soaking, real rain  ALL day, and now, at 10.00pm it’s still raining heavily.   None of this pretend rain that sprinkles a few droplets that dries up before I go back indoors.

Rain for the next few days according to the forecast.

Please, please rain in the countryside, down the coast and up in the mountains!   Please, please rain on the bushfires.   I don’t care how muddy it gets.   I don’t care how many puddles you make or dams you fill.   I don’t even care if you create new creeks, rivers and lakes.   Just keep on coming.
