What a Rainy Morning!

8 Mar

Boy, did it rain!

It was nothing, here where I live, compared to the absolutely flooding deluge I’ve just seen on television that occurred in other parts of Sydney. Nevertheless, it was quite impressive.

It hammered on the roof, gushed down the window panes, washed onto the verandah. The front path, covered by several inches of cold clear water, led to an equally flooded nature strip, which squelched underfoot.

Visibility went right down, replaced by an all-engrossing sense of nature overwhelming us.

This is Australia: land of drought, land of flood!
