It's Christmas Eve, and for the last week or so, we've had off-and-on rain. It's not the deluge that you might find during an Indonesian monsoon, but all the same, I've spent some quality time monitoring bilge pumps and slinging a shop-vac.
Of course we DO need the rain, quite desperately after so many years of draught conditions. And I do like the fact that everything gets a solid wash-down.
My friends in northern regions may get a white Christmas. This year it looks like we may be in for a "wet Christmas". I'll count it as a blessing...and hope for a dry Valentine's Day.
