These two photo challenges are quite pertinent at the moment. There has been so much rain south of my place and now it has hit my bit of the East Coast of Australia. So many places are flooded and the rain is going to continue until Wednesday. At my place I have recorded 252mls of rain in the past week and that is what some of the Cities further south of me recorded in one day!!! And it is still raining.
I would love to show you some recent photos but it’s too wet and I also have had car troubles so you will have to make do with some old photos from past inundations.
My House Dam has been overflowing for days.
A bit of an Aussie song to scroll to
This is the Clarence River up the road from my place. Yes there is a bridge under there somewhere. The bridge was built as a low level bridge so debris and large trees up rooted wouldn’t slam into it causing damage.
The floodwater bubble and boil. Bottlebrush trees are riverine species and the bend with the flow. The more rigid trees will snap and break with the force of the water.
On the beaches the floodwaters stir up a foamy mess
Even if it’s flooded, Cattle Egrets know how to stay high and dry.
Meanwhile in Grafton the river is rising but I don’t think it will reach this height this time
The boat shed went under water
A pub with a water view.
Afterward there is always a clean up
It certainly is weather for ducks
I am quite safe and secure just a bit soggy
