It's funny how things happen. In my last post I explained how dry it was here and that we were supplement feeding some of our cows. Well it's a totally different outlook this morning. We have had 42mm so far and it is still raining, this is our largest fall of rain since Easter. There is a small amount of water in our dams and the everything looks like it has a spark of life back in it.
Not that this means we are out of the drought because we are a long way from that but it does ease the pressure a little and makes christmas a whole light brighter.
I know there is a lot of people who are still experiencing drought and it is the most devasting thing a farmer is ever going to experience. I hope that christmas and the New Year bring all of us a little relief.
