So, last weekend I checked the rainwater tank (we're not on mains water) and we were down to a couple of days supply. Gambled on the forecast of 'possible showers'
Today our 40 000 litre tank has been overflowing. The pool (12m x 6m - you do the maths) has gone from skimmer box level to overflowing.
Both dams are at capacity (last week I had to stop using it as the level was too low to pump without dredging)
And it is peeing down, with a forecast of heavier rain and tornados.
Now the flaming power is out so I have to go out and get soaking opening the garage doors and front gate - both of whih are electric.
