At last after weeks and weeks of very dry weather (officially declared a drought here in Northland), we woke up this morning to lovely rain.
It's been raining fairly steadily since about mid morning and has just turned to light rain/drizzle now.
Our rain gauge even has water in it!!
The plants/fruit trees will have had a nice drink. It would be even better if we got some more rain over the next 24 hours to really make a difference to the dry conditions.
