One Australian farmer could not contain himself as torrential rain fell on his drought-stricken property. The rains didn’t just help him though, they were responsible for putting out over 30 large bushfires!

The heartwarming video posted to social media shows the overjoyed farmer welcoming the rain on his farm in New South Wales following months of drought.


The farmer steps outside and is celebrating the rainfall showing off the downfall on his brown farm.

As he cheers, the farmer takes off his hat and looks up at the sky as the rain fell down on his face.

‘Send it down. Let’s get wet,’ he said as it continues to pour.

He then shows off his cows standing out in the rain and puddles that are scattered around the property.

‘My cows – here’s some rain to give you some feed,’ he says to his herd.

Friday saw a second heavy downpour that has fallen on parts of Australia’s bushfire ravaged and drought-stricken east coast.


The first significant rain in months fell on Thursday – soaking parts of Victoria and helping to extinguish more than 32 blazes in New South Wales.

Rain is again forecast for this weekend with the heaviest predicted for regions around Sydney, the NSW mid-north coast, and Brisbane.

While the rain has given firefighters much-needed hope, there are also concerns the wet weather could cause flash flooding, landslides, and contaminate water with ash and debris.
