Summer is here!

Yesterday the sun was out, the secadas chirping, the BBQ sizzling, Matt was swimming and my lawn is now brown. Sounds like summer to me!
NIWA have released their climate summary for November too, and it’s no wonder my lawn is dying. The last measurable rain was 2.6mm back on Nov 14, with the total for that month just 16mm spread over 8 days – or 20% of normal. Nov was less windy on average also. Contrast that to the windier and wetter October when we had around 141mm – or 160% of normal – yuk.
