After all that whinging about our lack of rain, I can report that water is falling from the sky. Not vast amounts, but enough to turn my unmade, sloping driveway into a morass. I went out earlier armed with gardening implements and a sense of purpose and opened up a drainage channel that had been blocked by the industrious activities of bandicoots and/or scrubfowl and/or brush turkeys. I got soaked. Unless the animals don SCUBA gear to resume their digging, that drain will keep working. (Mind you, I wouldn't put it past them. Especially the bandicoots. They're devious little devils.) Not that the drain is very effective because the rain is running off in sheets, but it's making an effort. It's doing what it can.
The rain is causing the internet connection to wink in and out of existence. Still, that should mean I get some work done.
What are the odds?
