New Zealand has weather warnings today that we’re about to be deluged with rain with a threat of tornadoes. Just as well we managed to get the rain collection from the barn roof connected to the main water tank today. This means we’ll now be able to maximise the rain amount of we collect.
We were planning to install another tank to avoid the water shortage possibilities next year but the costs were much higher than we imagined so we’ll see how we go with just one tank but more water collection when it does rain.
High excitement too that we’ve had another tap installed outside by the barn. This will come in handy for watering the trees and save on the feet when refreshing the basset water bowl. It’s a great sense of satisfaction when I tick things off my list. After a slow and frustrating few weeks it’s good to be making progress at last.
If we do get the projected rainfall this week there’s a danger that parts of New Zealand that were suffering the most with droughts will be dealing with floods which I am sure bring their own brand of difficulties for those in weather dependent industries like farming. I’ll keep you posted.
Here’s a satellite image taken last night shows the thunderstorm in the Tasman Sea heading towards New Zealand. Looks grim.
