All I want for Christmas
All Judy and I want for Christmas is some rain.
It has been very frustrating seeing all the showers bypass us, just yesterday a suburb about six kilometers away received 60mm of rain while we got nothing.
The temperature has stayed in the 30s for what seems like months, there's just no respite.
This is the worst gardening time I have known in my life, it's just so sad to see my beautiful plants so stressed out and dying, what can I do other than use town water and there's just not enough of that what with the restrictions.
We will probably put another large tank in early next year. I knew we had enough water for four months of drought but never in my wildest dreams did I think we would go this long without rain.
Gardening is not an easy hobby that's for sure.
