Cool, partly cloudy with a cold breeze blowing fitfully. 7mm rain yesterday afternoon brings our total for November so far to 31mm. This is 120mm short of November 2013 total which in turn was 100mm short of the November 2012 total :(

More than 100mm over the past week. Where the veld was as hard as a snooker table, it is now as green as a snooker table. It is amazing what rain does to a lawn, You can water as much as you like but it will stay a pale green. Come the rain, the lawn turns to lush dark green.

PNF, I hope you get you get your fair share of rain soon :pray:

So true Rooies, nothing like a good rainfall to perk up the garden.

Cool, totally overcast - so far no wind. Another 6mm fell yesterday - signs do look hopeful for more today. Town 40kms to the north of us had 56mm on Friday - :hmz: wonder if that wasn't supposed to fall here :hmz:

Already hot - expected to reach mid-30's by lunchtime. A couple of fluffy white clouds marring the blue sky - no wind and no rain forecasted.
Our total rainfall for November was 81mm - about half of the average for that month. No rain has fallen yet this month.

Our weather is very unpredictable... when it rains its cold for days afterwards. This morning we even had heavy fog. :?

Wearing a jacket now, in December! :shock:

Cool, thick grey cloud, no wind - soft rain faliing. Total rainfall so far for December is over 180mm.......at last! Rains are late this year and will hopefully continue for the next couple of months. The Waterberg is now starting to live up to is name as marshes and streams fill up and start running......
