Below is the latest table, followed by a graph of annual totals for an instant visual display. 2015 was a disastrous year for much of South Africa. Drought continues to ravage the country and our reserve is terribly dry. Our annual rainfall normally averages 450-500 millimetres, but last year we only had 246.
