THERE was thunder and lightning and actual rain. Very different to the light drizzles recording 2 mm or so. In Greytown up to 45 mm of rain was recorded on Saturday —sportsmen and women were not happy but everyone else was.

But Lake Merthley is standing at 59,50% full this week — still a long way to go before those much awaited rains.

Weather forecasts do not predict rain for the rest of the week — temperatures mainly mid-twenties but a very hot 33 degrees is predicted for next Sunday.
