Above Average August Rains

20130831 001There were only 3 days this month that it didn’t rain!  An average August down here would have 18 days of rain, this year we had 28!  We ended up with almost 180mm, about 50mm more than average.  Jindong to our north got 170mm and Cowaramup to our south got over 200mm.  Our tanks have been overflowing for over 3 months, so I was pleased to see the rainbow finishing up in the water tank rather than more water.  Winter went out in style with 2 days of storm force winds gusting up to 90kmh.
