Our Rain Water Tank Was Hit By Lightning Last Night !

This is a photo of the outside and the other photo was taken of the inside of the tank you can see the side bottom has blown out . So we have no water to drink,( we have about 5 litres in a container in the kitchen), shower or flush our toilets ! We have bore water but it's too salty to drink. Today we went and brought a smaller rainwater tank 720 litres to fill for drinking water. I'm praying for lots of rain tonight ! We have filled buckets of bore water so we can flush our toilets wash our dishes and wash our hands. I had to boil a kettle of bore water to wash the dishes ! life can be very interesting at times ! Thank god it wasn't the house !
Insurance company assessor will be coming tomorrow at 12 noon to assess the damage.
So that was our adventure for today !Come on rain ! I may do a rain dance later on ! Kev has just informed me they don't expect rain for another week ! Will definitely do a rain dance .

The 720 litre rainwater tank we bought just for drinking water, It got full on the first night . It was something we were going to do one day have been talking about it for a few years now. can't rush these things lol ! That way every year we can give it a flush out and refill with clean water !

Great news our insurance company are going to cover the damage we are getting a new rain water tank and liner next week ! It comes with a 20 year warranty on the tank and liner !
Also we have ordered a waterboy I will do a blog on that when we get it installed it oxygenates the water !


  1. Maybe a 'Naked' rain dance might do the trick !!! LOL
