That screams of mismanagement. We were inundated with water in the months up to December - the ground couldn't hold any more water, which is why it sat on the ground. It has been quite dry since, but good grief!
Hi Manky I agree, I cut the grass on thurs even though it was only about 2inc high and it was so dry, we had a few showers yesterday but no real downpour. It hasn't rained properly since before Christmas!
It lasted for a good few hours up here. There's still snow, well there was Thursday, up on the moors and the reservoirs were full! There's rain forecast today and tomorrow so I'm not worrying about drought yet.
It does need to rain more though to get things growing gain, but given how dreadful the last few summers have been we don't need too much or we'll be facing floods because the aquifers are so high.
well down south it rained most of yesturday, really heavy showers interspersed with light rain. It has also rained on and off of of last week and we are due more next week. I have sat outside with a cuppa twice so far this year, some spring sunshine would go down very well about now!
To be honest I hadn't noticed! Here our water table is incredibly high, even though we didn't have any rain for a while now its back our rivers are once again really high and mini lakes in lots of places.
