0.83" rain in 6 hours!!


Overnight Monday-Tuesday we had 2 cracking thunderstorms, each one over 0.4" rain, total was 0.83" according to our weather station. It sank in to the earth & vanished. Grass looks greener just 'cos the dust has been washed off it but ground still like concrete. Sheep looked lovely & black, ponies were muddy :D Raspberries have plumped up a bit :) & happily the gooseberries have not split. Waiting to see if it was enough to get the grass growing.

It keeps coming over dark here, but we get nothing. When it does rain it seems to be very localised. After all the rain last winter and Spring I never thought I would be so wishing for some to beef the grass up.

Nothing in Wales, except a 5 minute shower, plus point my ponies can use parts of the fields they haven't been able to for years because they were too boggy
