We are down to quarter of a tank of water again. And next week's rain forecast looks mostly like the picture above - squat didley. Maybe a few showers on Tuesday, but don't hold your breath.
We have been really lucky so far. Our first summer out here on tank water and we have a drought, but always, just as we are getting lower than quarter of a tank and starting to contemplate buying water, it rains just enough to give us a few more weeks.
The cows have finished their rotation on our paddocks and are back into the neighbours again, but his waterhole is looking precariously low, we may yet have to hose water to a trough for them.
I recycle my shower water into the washing machine and water my veges with grey water. The car hasn't been washed for months etc etc.
I know this is nothing like the droughts other parts of the world get, but for us, who aren't really prepared, it's hard work.
Do a little rain dance for us, will you?!
