Dampish [Jul. 18th, 2019|09:50 am]
Tony Grist
We have four big rainwater butts dotted about the property. I don't know how much they hold but it's a lot. I draw from them when I'm watering the garden. Three of them have now run dry- which brings home to me how little rain we've had this summer. I lifted the lid on one of them and there was several decades worth of muddy gloop at the bottom. I don't suppose they've been moved from their positions or swilled out since my father installed them. They're heavy; I'm not going to attempt it.

It's raining now. Well, just about. It's more like a dampness in the air. I was out in it, trimming the edge of a flowerbed- and hardly got wet. There's more on the way, we're told- maybe even some storms. I think it's what we need.

Same here too.
If it's about rain, this place here always seems to be left forgotten in that...

Mostly it rains a lot in this corner of the world- but we do have occasional dry spells.

Our forecast is for unsettled weather over the weekend and then lots more sun.

They say that it will cool down by the end of the weekend but idgaf. I think the weather people here have shit for brains. It (the heat and humidity) hasn't let up... one bit.

I was startled to see rain this morning - it's been so long since we last had any.

Not that it was very effective rain. Just enough to make a dog walker damp, but not enough to wet the garden.

I believe the forecast is for proper rain over the weekend.
