We love rain.
All the more exciting if accompanied by a good bang of thunder and flicker of lightning after a sultry hot day. Now the younguns even race to the radar to see exactly what lies ahead.
This afternoon's offering had them simply beside themselves. Mark it down in the history books said Jess, her first hail experience.
Just to the very southern edge of what looked a particularly nasty storm, we received only some very small hail and 9 mil of rain. Enough to drop the temperature thankfully.
With storms predicted until the end of the week, we're hopefully in with a chance for some more. The neighbour's early morning report suggests maybe an inch at Bottle Tree last night.
And finally, spare a thought for the big fella who drafted several hundred feeders today, somewhere close to Boulia. He rang in a 47 degree weather report this afternoon ... sometimes it's good to be the stay at home mum!
