I woke up disappointed this morning to the fact that it wasn't raining. The system that had deluged the north of our state was heading our way, and had been expected to be in our area overnight. The radar revealed it wasn't far off and by 7:30 this morning, the first rain was falling on our roof.
Our kids curse the fact that no creeks separates us from school, at least none that pose a flooding risk. By the time I took them in to meet their classmates, raising today's student population to ten, we'd had close to two inches.
As I redirected downpipes away from the overflowing rainwater tank that was flooding my laundry, these little fellas rejoiced.
By midday, when the system had moved through, we'd reached nearly four inches. Coupled with the four we received over the weekend, we're now set to cruise into Winter.
So what to do on a rainy day when outside work is limited?
Baking of course.
Firstly Marble Cake,
followed by the kids' favourites
And for lunch on a cooler than usual day?
Which surely entitles me to a slice of Marble Cake for supper.
