It was lovely last night, as the daylight faded, listening to heavy rain, and hearing the thirsty land drinking deep, and the dessicated roots expanding and reaching upwards.. past the scorched surface...

Still raining; cats coming n dripping wet....

Reading posts here..

A healing.

Nature never ceases to amaze me. Two weeks ago my lawn resembled a desert. Now it's actually green again. The sound of the rain falling earlier was actually very pleasant to listen to !!

Lashing in Sligo

Nothing much showing on radar but let me assure you its bucketing

However with Sligos microclimate its sunny on Knocknarea but pouring a few fields away so maybe just a stagnant thunderstorm im in

Please make it lash for 3 to 4 days and return to heat for 2 weeks and then ill be happy.

After all the UK has still to break its record temperature as
Tokyo
Montreal
and
Arctic Circle have

Very heavy bursts of rainfall here in south county Dublin, the last shower was for a duration of 30 minutes or so, and 2mm of rain fell. We've had showers off and on since 10am. The water barrel in my back garden is filling nicely now
