Yesterday we got about 12cm of rain at Farcical Farm. It poured for 24 hours straight, and I got to wear my new red robe for the first time this season.
When David’s folks were in Tasmania they sprung for a family speedboat tour of Bruny Island. Everyone on the tour got a long, waterproof cape to wear as protection against soaking by sea water. As we were zooming around I realized that such a cape would be perfect for rainy day farm chores, since my knees always get wet in my long jacket. After the tour I asked the company’s owner if I could buy one, and he sold me this for $85. It would have been a bargain at any price.
