Another 24mm of Rain

We've been monitoring the rainfall in the northern Flinders Ranges since mid November. Our plans for the next instalment of our Beyond the Heysen trek from Angepenna Station to Arkaroola in April depends on good summer rains. Without the rains, we have no water as water drops will be too difficult.

Another 24mm of rain fell yesterday at Arkaroola, in addition to the good rains in late November, Christmas Day and a considerable fall in early February.
