I should get one for Tassie.

Like England? Only in that it rains nearly every fucking day!

My sis and Mum bought me a wonderful coat, leather? warm and waterproof. $1 from an op shop. Fucked if I know where it is, the wonders of living with dementia!.

I am going to have to be careful about throwing stuff away after she passes, so much of MY stuff is likely in her piles of crap! the coat, books, spice grinding jars, cutting disks for the food processer etc etc etc.

Sunshine this arvo..
But got 91 mm overnight.... (according to neighbour's rain gauge)

Heavy clay content here... a, say, 20' slope, had a river running down the drive... getting positively boggy in places. Good thing I have an AWD.

The lower part of my drive is just mush. Midway down the drive it is practically liquified. The sun has come out for the last couple of days.. done some washing and had a chance to look around.

Had fully grown She-Oak just fall over cause the ground is so drenched. The fence it took down was not badly harmed,, it just fell over too. I thought the star picket had been bent, but nope. So my friendly neighbour came down and used my wee electric chainsaw to clear it then just stood up the star picket and stomped it back in place. Big fire to burn soon.

The water is still draining off, and I should get the shovel out and clear some run-off drains, BUT, I've stuffed my neck for now.. so not doing anything very physical. Amazing the growth around... though most obvious are the WEEDS.!!

Yeah, can't use one myself. Probably the worst tool for me to use.. too many degrading 'structural' injuries. you know? old damage .

I can and do manually remove weeds, and then burn them. I can do as little or as much hand-weeding as I am comfortable with, and it IS satisfying.

But sadly , not enough. Not to worry.

There is a non–glyphosphate herbicide. Works OK. Or spray malt vinegar on it.

25°C here ... was supposed to rain today but apart from a few drops we got nothing. Then they said thunderstorms this evening but again nothing.

I should have been a meteorologist ... the only job where they pay you to get it wrong.

still waiting for some rain here. Can smell/feel it is near, but live in a little rain-free bubble area here.

LOL! As long as you specify °F or °C it is fine. 26°C and sunny today so will be out most of the day.
