Ok EBers, I know some parts of Aus have had rain, but it's time to start the rain dances up again for us down south, we're nearly out of water!!  It has been sooooo long since it rained here and the tanks are just about dried up.  And that means buying in water.  The cost doesn't bother me, but the water quality does!

So everyone, just a few minutes of rain dancing outside would be much appreciated.  Clothing optional!!

ETA- Rain dance instructions here!

I can swirl each breast in a different direction - will that impress the rain deities?

My mum is part of a craft (stamping) group, all 'women of a certain age' as she calls it. And a few years ago, at a gathering, they DID do a rain dance. Some of them anyway, tops off and all.
Must have been a sight to see!Drought did break a few months later though...

Getting on down to rain related songs as I type.  Rain should be along sometime before midnight on some non-specified date in the future.  No need to thank me.

Yep, we'll be joining you, desperately need rain here. We have already bought one load of water, got a bit of rain which put some good water back into the tank but that is quickly disappearing plus the paddocks are dry and need a good fall of rain, don't think the farmers nearby trying to harvest will be dancing with us though.

Blow the rain dance instructions, I'd like to know how to swirl a breast in a different direction? Mine are well long and rubbery nowadays and should be easy to swirl, but different directions? Impressive.

Rain, Go get your hair cut and (this is the important bit) blow dried - that'll do the trick.

I had to buy a load of water just last week, so yes, bring on the rain!

roll2.gif  Just don't go swirling anti-clockwise, that sends the rain away!!

We're in Central Victoria.  It hasn't rained here for over 4 months.  We had to start bringing in water 2 weeks ago for the animals etc but we're down to low on the house tanks.  It was looking promising last night and this morning, but the whole lot only equated to about 2-4mm!

Yes I remember all the ladies of Ouyen up near Mildura did a nude rain dance to help break the drought.  That's why I put clothes optional, incase any of them were reading this roll2.gif
