It never rains but it pours

Literally, yesterday. There was a break from the rain in the late afternoon when we were able to get out and finish pruning the roses (there is a green pickup this week). No complaints from us - send her down, Huey.

Metaphorically, computers again. At long last the container has arrived, so the ones that are packed ready to go to Zimbabwe can finally be moved from the garage and workshop. We are really glad that it happened this week - there would have been all sorts of problems in trying to organise this while we were in the US.

And the rain has revived Bibra Lake. There is still a long way to go before it is full, but most of the central mud bank is now under water and it looks like a lake again. North Lake is still struggling, but there are isolated fingers of water. Today there were dozens of swans there, swimming in the water patches and fossicking for seeds in the growth that still covers most of the central area of the lake.
