We were on a farm tour which started in Rotorua and went via the King Country then through the King Country to Port Waikato last week.
It was green around Te Kuiti but everywhere else is desperate for rain.
Back in North Otago we’ve yet to have 24 mls (an inch in old money) this year.
How dry is it?
So dry they’ve had to close a couple of lanes in the school swimming pool.
