This afternoon we had some more glorious rain. In came in the form of a Summer storm, which was very loud and fierce. My children are always scared of these storms, and spend the duration of them huddled on the lounge under a blanket, or under the doona on our bed. I try to be brave, and pretend I am not worried, but my experience of electrical storms in East Africa has caused me to be nervous of such events.
I just looked up the Sydney Catchment Authority's web site and discovered that the available water supplies in the Sydney area are at 58.8% at the moment. I thought after the rain we have had recently that the level would have been higher, but obviously it has been falling in the wrong areas. I know that the garden is loving the extra water, and our lawn is actually looking green this year.
