Rain!! at Uluru???

It never rains here.

rain 14 °C

Ok for a place that is only supposed to get 11 inches of rain in a year, I think it has all come in the time we've been here. It rained the entire day we arrived and has been raining all night and all day today. We were supposed to pack up today and leave, but the road to our next destination is closed and it is supposed to get rain for the next 4 days. We decided to stay one more day and head back south to Adelaide instead of trying King's Canyon in the rain.

Once we decided to do this, we ventured back to the rock and were rewarded with a rare sight. Waterfalls cascading off of Uluru. This is rare and not heard of in the winter time, but we Allores have brought the rain with us. We are actually very lucky to see this as most people who see Uluru do not see it with waterfalls. Here are a few pics to show that we are not lying.

Who knew you'd consider yourselves lucky to have a rainy day! Those are pretty cool pictures of a once in a lifetime event - personally and meterologically speaking. Pretty soon you'll be quacking like ducks for all the water you're wading through!

'rain luck'!! Awesome pictures; thanks! Everyone is well here in Minden. Keep those feet dry; you don't want foot rot!!!! Take care.

Very good pictures,You are fortunate to be there and see all ,and do all that you can. Some people wait until they retire and more times than not it is too late. It is really nice to see you in the pictures. We saw on TV last week where snow had come to Australia where there had not been any foe ten (10) years.
