I Knew I Shouldn't Get Excited...

Most of our readers know how hard this summer has been with the lack of rainfall and I am losing track of the number of times it has forecasted rain with nothing showing except for a few drops.

Once again it was showing 90% chance of 20-30mm of rain for tomorrow this morning and I thought we were saved.  Watering has been tough and plants are really showing the stress.

I just checked the weather...

Down from a glorious 20-30mm to "close to 5mm".

How can they get it so wrong again and again and again.

At some point I would hope they would just forecast no rain ever and I would eventually get a nice little surprise...instead I am left heartbroken again and again...
