The Storm

Monday, 05 Dec 11 Storms 26°C / 79°F

Hi Folian buddies,

We have a beautiful thunder storm happening today. I say beautiful because we rarely get good soaking rain. All our new plants are going to be so happy :)

The only worry is that we have a severe weather warning for our area. This may mean the plants get more than they bargained for. We lost our fence in the last big storm, so we are hoping we get home from work to an intact house and garden.

Fingers crossed x

    Fantastic isn’t it!? Not so great for my mildew problems though. :(
    I think we’ll be fine this time, touch wood! :)

    I’m just glad I won’t have to water our lawn for a few days!
    What an awesome storm it was, I hope you didn’t have any damage.

    Came home and no damage at all! Just a really good soaking. Glad to hear all you guys came through with some good rain too. Hope it dries out so the mildew can get under control melons :)

    Even still, they’ve renewed the severe weather warning for tonight. It just feels so calm now, strange to think it could flare up again. Hope it’s just more beautiful, drenching rain. If I’d know it would be this wet so late in Spring and into Summer I would have planted more. Oh well, I’ll just keep on establishing natives in the native garden and get some summer vegies in the ground soon.

    Good luck with the rain!
