Rain and Rain

Our tanks are finally overflowing and the dam water has come over the banks. We have had loads of rain from a monsoon low (which luckily didn't form into a cyclone)and we are well and truly soaked.

We had enough water for boogie boarding and kayaking and no dry washing.

On Monday morning the rain gauge had overflowed so we don't actually know how much rain got but it is over 165mm. There was another 108mm this morning in the gauge and we are having a relatively dry day so far today.

They are expecting the monsoon trough to return north by the end of the week so the wet is here to stay for a little while at least.

Our number one and only son didnt' go to school yesterday as there was so much traffic on the road that people were taking four hours to do a trip that normally only takes about 25 minutes.

There was flooding on major roads and the range was blocked with landslides and fallen trees, even this morning there was a large boulder on the range and a tree blocking the road.

When my partner in crime and life went to work yesterday afternoon he was going in the opposite direction to the traffic and so had no problems, he basically had his side of the road to himself. Everyone else was going home and were all stopped, apart from everyone only having one road to go on, the road went from two lanes to one, not a good look.

As for me, I am just trying to keep up with the washing, nothing worse than lots of wet dirty washing in wet weather, been doing some cooking and hoping I don't get called down for jury duty. Only 1 1/2 weeks left of having to be available for this then I am free, YAY, then back to my regular life of not having to remember to check every day for this.


  1. Those photos are AMAZING!!! I like seeing that despite the miserable weather you and your boys are having fun and making the most of it. :-)

  2. It WAS a lot of fun even though we felt quite mouldy for a couple of days :)
