Splendid rains

Two and a quarter inches of rain fell yesterday afternoon in town (Graaff-Reinet), and there was a good fall over the district generally.
The river came down in the evening.
A good soaking rain set in this afternoon, and there is every sign of its continuation.

Amazing, exactly 100 years later and again a drought partially broken by rains. Just goes to show that we may not be in a global warming pattern. What do you think?
