You may wonder why I took, & have uploaded, a picture of plates of rainwater on the balcony!

I took it to illustrate (& to remember) the tremendous amount of rain we had on June 13th. In the space of 12 hours we had at least an inch & a half of rain - more than in all the six months past put together.

These plates had pots of plants in them this morning, till I removed them about 7.30am. Even then the plates were full of the water that had drained through the pots so really we have had even more than that which you see here!

I took this photo around 6pm this evening & we have had more rain since then as well so maybe 2" in the course of the day! Practically a year's worth of rain for us here in Cambridgeshire!

We had a lot of rain for about 2 weeks, massive floods in the Novo Hamburgo area. Here in São Chico the rain was so intensive that the street colapsed in front of my neighboors house.
The construction department of the municipality did the repair, but had to open the whole street until our side. Now it is recomposed and draining the remaining water. Since last Thursday we have no rain, only heavy clouds. we expect it to cool down without much rain.

It has certainly been a wet month so far ... dry and sunny at times today ... at last!
