Merredin rainfall figures

October 30th, 2008

Back in June I did a post called Rain and hope. This talked about how important rain is for country areas and how it effects whole towns, families and local business. I also asked people to pray for rain.

Well the good news is the rain has come. This is only our first full winter in Merredin, but it is definately more than we had last year. As you can see below, most of the winter months were above average rainfall.

  • July – 73mm (avg 51mm)
  • August – 19mm (avg 39mm)
  • September – 58mm (avg 25mm)
  • October – 50mm (avg 17mm)

The only month that was below average was August. But from what I can understand most farmers got through ok.

We are having more rain at the moment. So some of the farmers want the rain switched off for a bit. This is because it is approaching harvest time and they need the crops to dry out.

I don’t know about you, but it seems almost sacreligious to pray for rain to stop!

Thanks again for all those people who prayed, it made a huge difference 🙂
