It’s been the driest dry season here for 15 years, according to the local Sun newspaper.
It rained on us here in Pulau Tikus once in February. Then sometime last week, from memory, and on Saturday. Not so much rain, but at least something. For a few days now, there have been clouds around early in the morning, but they have cleared. But this afternoon it has rained heavily twice. The second downpour has been continuing for over an hour.
So the garden will be happy after today for at least a couple of days, and I have collected enough water for two to three days use after that, so I don’t need to use the town water until Saturday at the earliest – if there is no more rain until then.
