Our First El Nino storm.


By stan510


We’ve had rain…but just normal rains. This is so far more soaking. Rains today,and more or less until Friday.
Today is one of the few rains that have fallen in the day. Mostly its night until before dawn.I can’t explain that.

Look later at this post to see if i added rain photos.

Not like last year. At least I can water now in summer.

Just lookat december in the UK Stan.......
conveyor belt of storms lashing us and flooding us badly , especially the poor folk further north who's homes.....And Christmas were ruined not only once but twice or three times.....
And more to come this week.....

Only yesterday a school bus was washed away and all the children rescued by the fire brigade, the emergency services have been working flat out and the Army called in to reinforce flood defences....
Shades of two years ago......

Pleased you have some nessesary rain Stan

Thanks Loose and Pam. Its been raining in a good way here. The local news as always show people sandbagging. For what?-lol. A half inch?. Ratings. Even three inches in four days as this last storm is delivering isn't biblical. Gardening wise? My plants that prefer a dry winter might be a little stressed....but for the most part,a nice green has set in. Lawns around town are now like the Irish countryside- again. Until May..

We've had a lot of rain. Sky is threatening again although the sun has been shining.
