Rain - this one looks wet

Just after 2pm Tues 20th: After a few 'attempts' over the last week or two there is some rain in the district the front - coming through right now may have a bit more rain in it. Quite a good shower. Hopefully (if we get more) that it is not enough to affect anyone making hay, but enough to freshen things up.
Result so far: Well - once again - the showers didn't last long (here in Eudunda). Jae Dalgleish at Bower reported 2.5mm in that rain front. At Midnight there is dampness around, but that is about it.
It did look like they might have had more rain north of here (on BOM).
