This morning I was amazed to find it had rained ever-so-briefly.
Perhaps TheUniverse preemptively weeping for the UK election result?
Proper rain is not forecast until (I think) February and Level 2 water restrictions started this week. This means hoses are banned for most things and we can only water plants before 10am or after 4pm with a watering can and we also must use a bucket to wash the car. This latter does not pose much of an issue as we wash the car maybe twice a year.
Smoke is set to return to the city tomorrow.
