Good rain

A total of 70 mls with no damage, that’s a good rain.

UPDATE: Good for us but further north, in South Canterbury, they’ve had far too much of a good thing:

Torrential rain caused flooding across South Canterbury yesterday and by 10pm last night the Te Ngawai had reached a 50-year flood level, flowing at 1000 cumecs.

Wet conditions are forecast for the rest of the week.

Much of the region experienced more than 90 millimetres of rain – significantly more than the 75mm average total rainfall for the month. Rainfall of 180mm was recorded in some areas. Most rivers experienced flows of 10- to 20-year return periods. . .

Some roads are closed and the forecast is for more rain.

    Saturated in the Waikato hills. Just spent $6000 on new tractor tyres. Had to, was running out of undies.

    Ian – yours is a generous offer but I think the USA needs it more.

    Wildwan – undies are cheaper than tyres, but new tyres are more useful in the wet.

    Told you it was bloody wet! Can now get through the torrent (creek) again. Goes up and down fast. Dropped 4 feet already!!Thankfully the wollies didn’t sieze on the opportunity to scatter lambs all over the place!!

    A wetter than average August predicted. This will take some management. Fat % in milk already indicates a lot of cow condition loss.
