Everyone is talking about the rain. In the western part of the USA where wildfires are raging they want it and need it. In Europe they have had way too much which has caused floods. Many fellow bloggers have been posting about how much rain they are having. Of course it is winter here in Australia so we expect some rain but this last two weeks has been exceptional in our part of Tasmania.
When I lived in Geeveston we often had continuous rain for days. The front garden would become a bog and I couldn’t get any washing dry unless I used the dryer. Last winter here, although we certainly had some wet days and some big thunderstorms, I don’t think it was as wet as this. I am not sure yet what is normal for the northwest coast as it is only the second winter we’ve had the house.
Naomi used to joke that it always rained when she came to visit me in Geeveston and then when she started coming to Sisters Beach the same thing happened. “I suppose when I move here for good it will rain all the time.” she said jokingly. Last Tuesday (13th July) she moved here for good and guess what? It has not stopped raining since!
According to the weather forecast we have another week of wet weather to look forward to. After this deluge I most certainly hope that our water tanks are full.
