And now this...
..and it doesn't seem to know how to stop.
Still no complaints.
Having closely monitored the forecast path of Tropical Cyclone Ului all of this week, we are somewhat relieved to only be feeling the outermost reaches of his grasp, with rain falling last night and today, close to two inches now.
Unfortunately, flushing was on today's agenda, a job that cannot be put off due to weather, illness or lack of motivation. From Day 1 of the needling program to align donor and recipient cows through to Day 19, no deviation from the calendar is allowed, so come rain, sleet or snow, today we had to flush.
So with gumboots donned, raincoats reached for and hats pulled low, we made it through.
Children were given strict orders to remain housebound, to ring the yards only in case of emergency and to ensure all washing was folded and put away before our return.
They did good!
