Rainfall in Cambridge

 Another night when we didn't get a thunderstorm. I don't think there will be any Spring rain in the bowling green area, it is extremely free draining because of the hardcore and clinker under the thin and very sandy top soil. I hear, traditionally, it starts to rain when the state schools break up (this Tuesday).

15 August 2018: we finally got some rain - and then some more. It is very exciting having full water butts again. We forgot how wet rain can be and three of us got VERY wet on Monday's garden session... weeding in drizzle is OK but not in thunder.
