We've got our fingers and toes crossed for rain for tomorrow and Weds as predicted. Its getting very dry here, and those I have spoken to from BOP and Auckland are saying that it is bad there. How is everyone coping elsewhere?

Take a break...while I take care of your home, your block, your pets, your stock! [;)] PM me...

Oh well, we are heading home from holiday tomorrow and I have to say after two weeks of sun everyday I, and the family, could do with a break from it.[:0]

I'll believe it when I see it.... We are pretty desperate, but if it could just rain at night that would be most agreeable!

Just checked out the TVNZ weather satellite. Looks like there's a lot of wet stuff out there in the Tasman. Hope it gets all the way across the country to me. My place is a lot drier than yours, Tigger.

We are very dry here too, keep getting big black clouds like now over the mountains but all we get are few spits or little bit of drizzle.

Having time is a measure of enthusiasm:rolleyes:

We are really dry here in Pauatahanui(20mins north of Wellington) our stream dried up last week and it has only been a trickel for the last month. Hope the rain stays around for a while. Its not pouring but just a constant drizzle for the last 3 1/2 hours. Had 10.8mm so far. Although it would be nice if it stoped in the morning and then started in the evening again so I can work.

Peeing here in Otaki to. Great for the paddocks but have some very annoyed goats here who are all in their shed not daring to wander out and graze lol.

Raining here as well. Not the heavy rain we have a warning about but it maybe peeing down further up in the ranges. It is enough rain to freshen the place up but we could do with a good few days of it as we are still recovering from the dry November and it is still quite dry here.

Hopefully the rain is coming your way Tigger:)

Nice and green down here with several little showers since that drizzle followed by rain in mid Dec [^]. The thistles, of course, are growing three times as fast as anything else:(:(:( and I must go and check the hay paddock sometime this week. Last time I looked it was pretty gutless with lots of seeded dogstail and only the beginnings of good clover underneath.

Fingers crossed for rain for those of you who need it.
