There has been more rain in Canberra today, but thankfully it appeared to be void of strong winds and hail.
Today I’ve recorded another rain video, I’m going to see if Google Video can handle it properly.
Update 6:20pm: I had a nap and came back to the computer to find my face staring at me from a Google Video upload successful screen!
The rain is now gone and there is a bit of blue sky. The rain is good, but we, along with many other parts of the nation, need more.
Update 6:44pm: And for those who prefer the original video, click here. (One reason that I place the original video online is that it is otherwise impossible for the video to be preserved by the National Library’s PANDORA Archive, as Google and YouTube videos are not “on site”).
Update 7:54pm: ABC’s Television news had pictures of hail in southern Canberra…it looks like the hail situtation was reversed today. Yesterday the hail was up my end of town, with virtually no rain or hail in southern Canberra, today it was hailing in southern Canberra, and merely raining in northern Canberra. Incidentally the rain started again while I was taking Nattie for her evening walk, we enjoyed it, although I didn’t start “singing in the rain”! End Update
