Christmas Greetings from the Howes

May you have a blessed time this Christmas, and in the rush and bustle don’t forget God, who holds our every breath in His hands.

Winter anyone?

December 8, 2010

Well, I just emptied the rain gauge and it read 95mm for the last 24 hours, and the rain is still falling.  The paddocks that were dry yesterday are flooded once again and we had to turn off the bottom wires of the electric fence.  Anyone would think it was winter again, except that it is not really cold.  I imagine the farmers are resigning themselves to not being able to make hay before Christmas this year, although they have been busy making silage.  However, hearing what it is like in WA this year I guess they should just be thankful that they can make it at all – no rain over that way by the sounds of it.
