Just before five o'clock this morning I was awakened by an unfamiliar sound: rain on the roof.
It's the first precipitation we've had here for weeks, and is most welcome even if it means that we have to seek out our umbrellas, raincoats and the like.
Last evening I cycled to Glenelg to watch the sun set in a cloudless sky. This will probably be the last such one we'll see for a while, as more rain is forecast for the next few days. I'm sure most of us will welcome it.
