…….But then the grey clouds gather,
And we can bless again
The drumming of an army,
The steady, soaking rain……….. (My Country; Dorothea Mackellar)
Our latest building focus has been installing guttering onto the front of the house.
The boys have been digging trenches under the house each afternoon for the pipe. Even receiving help from the younger boys.
With the addition of the downpipes we can nearly hear the rain gurgling into the tank.
For the older boys conditions are rather cramped under there, it is a long way to run the pipe.
On dark the pipe ends at the tank, just in time! We awoke to hear the “The drumming of an army, The steady soaking rain.” 🙂
