30th-31st March 1947: wettest for 90 years
30 Sun. Rather cool, dull, rain discontinuing during the morning. This month has been the wettest March for 90 years. A crowd of children called in afternoon. Len Conley, Peter & John Child called in evening to hear Colombo on the short waves.
31 Mon. Very cool, very dull, rain all day: calm. Stayed in for the landlord but he did not come. Pruned Aunt Hannah’s roses in afternoon and did some local shopping. The three children called, tried to play table tennis with them. Received Australia on short waves this morning.
