Sunshine and blue sky in the west and solid grey in the east, but the monstrous grey cloud is being pushed along at a fair old lick by the westerly wind. This a photograph from a few weeks ago but still we've had no serious rain for weeks.
The ground is as hard as bricks. In fact when you look at the soil, turned and busted, you can see exactly where bricks came from. This monster cloud didn't drop any rain and successive clouds have just managed a sprinkle, not even enough to soak the ground.
The weather must change soon, no doubt the farmers are prying for rain now so that they can finish their preparation of the ground and start sowing next years crops.
Looks like we might need a minister for drought again, well a minister to end the dry weather anyway.
