We have had a few drops here & its gone again. Geez, please dont tell me that was it :-( Needs to pour down for at least 2 days here. We have been here for 7 years and this is the first time the grass in our backyard had "died"....

Couple of spits now and then...it is supposed to start here tonight, but MetService has gone from 'rain' to 'occasional showers' :(

A couple of big drops, you know the big splashy ones. With the wind blowing like it is, all warm and gusty, I reckon most of the wet stuff is drying out before it hits the ground. Our paddocks and lawn are so dry, you could roll 'em up and smoke them. The cracks are appearing in parts and are pretty substantial. If you happened to step on one wrong you could twist an ankle.

It appears to have cooled off a bit but it's still too warm inside to sit comfortably.
We went off into Pukekohe today and Oooooooh some of the big shops had air conditioning and it was luverly! As soon as you walk in, the cool air hits you. It's a bit like opening a fridge door.

If one could push the boundries of being cheeky, it would be nice to take a book into one of the shops that sells lounge suites and pretend you were test driving a flash couch or lazyboy.

Careful what you wish for ... I heard a report of a tropical cyclone heading Northland's way, with rain for much of the North Island from about Tuesday??? Although apparently the warning has been downgraded.

I wish you some rain :)

Not nearly enough - hardly wet the ground and it is back down to drizzle

We ran out of water this morning so looking for a good steady downpour for about two days. (could do with it on the grass too)

Its finally raining properly tonight (here north of Auckland), after a constant drizzle from about 3:00pm this afternoon.

Just about time too, as there are cracks appearing everywhere in the garden and the paddocks. The steady rain is supposed to continue for the next couple of days (fingers crossed) and hopefully that will give the ground a good soaking.

I've woken to a nice gentle drizzle... wot more could one ask for.... to slowly appease the parched ground... and Im guessing the drops will increase and multiply to appease the empty tank and low water table.. Hope you are getting the same cloud Kate and BB and Oskatd, Bev and AJ[8D]
Lets hope the gossip of a cyclone swings out to sea and goes chases a whaling ship[}:)]

Heavy showers during night and constant drizzle still falling.
Might not fill the tanks but will definantely help the grass and trees etc.
Hope all others are getting it too.
Fingers crossed for your way Kate, it was pretty dry everywhere as we drove home.

Steady heavy drizzle here. Don't think it is filling the tanks more than a little but should be freshening up the grass nicely without running off.

Fingers crossed for it to turn into steady rain about lunchtime...
