The rain finally came on 28/29 July!

Just thought I’d let you know! (see last post)  Approx 9 weeks without any real rain – just a few bits of drizzle once in a while.

Farmers are using up the feed they would normally store until winter, as many fields turned yellow – and some of them are warning they may have to slaughter some of their cattle as there is not enough food for them.   I wonder what other consequences there will be of the drought?
