3mm rain last night brings our rainfall total to 17mm so far for the month of November. Seems as if the rain doesn't want to come north ........ :(

Cloudy with a few patches of blue sky (more there than here!) it's a comfortable 18C and likely to reach mid 20's later on. Hopefully there will be another couple of millimetres of the wet stuff later :)

Good rain all around, 50mm and more in some places. I went to Vryburg yesterday and it was wet everywhere. Some of the farmers did not even wait for the rain to stop. The tractors were working the land in pouring rain.

Thank heaven for that. The slightest breeze stirred up the dust and covered everything in the house.

Nice rain yesterday afternoon evening and more this morning. Got my sand arenas harrowed and now the sun is shining and I can just about hear the grass growing now in the paddocks and garden lawn! I think more rain is on its way.

I do hope some of this rain will reach Kruger - much needed there.

Marakele and Mapungubwe are extremely dry - many places in Limpopo last had rain in April......not good. Wind has started blowing and the clouds that had vanished earlier are beginning to build up again.

Very good rain the past week. Some farmers had up to 90 mm. There is a lot of moist in the air. If the water runs down your glass with of Oom Charles' stuff, then the chances of rain are good.

First good seasonal thunder storm last night......some heavy rain at times, and it kept up most of the night too.

Still very dry but 1mm rain fell last night ( :roll: )......totally overcast and the clouds do not resemble rain clouds.
24C and will probably get to about 28C by lunch time.
