We are in Hunua near Papakura. We started haying on Saturday, and have been caught out by the unexpected drenching for all of Sunday and again today. It continued to rain all last night – no really heavy falls, just continuous showers. We were expecting a dry weekend.
Is there any dry weather expected for this area very soon? If not, we will lose our hay!
