5 Minutes ago – 12 March

Hammad’s Weekend Sky #59

It looks like the big rains have gone and the ground is starting to dry. No longer squelchy when I walk around the garden. There are still rain around and storms are predicted for some areas still. I hope for a sunny day today and by the looks of it, it could be. I feel deeply for friends and family in Lismore, the Richmond catchment who took the brunt of what is being called a rain bomb, over 600mls in some places in a few hours, and for those in my catchment whose houses and farms have been flooded with water still on the ground almost two weeks later.

Anyway here’s your song for the day

Not a cloud to be seen this morning

The sun saying good morning to the gum trees

  1. The song was so appropriate and it’s new to me so I appreciate it all the more. Though it made me feel a little tearful it was also a comfort. You caught those blue skies beautifully! Now they seem permanent in my mind even though they didn’t last that long. Thanks, Brian!

  2. Beautiful sky, Brian. I hope the sun comes out in force to dry out the land. 600mm in a few hours is a phenomenal amount of rain. If I recall rightly, that’s close to the annual rainfall for 80% of Australia. I can’t even begin to imagine how scary that would have been.

        1. Those dust clouds are horrible. In a way it’s lucky you have a supply of masks for going out when you need to. Everything must be gritty. I’ll blow as best I can. πŸŒ§πŸŒ‚


  3. I read about the Lismore back in March and saw the pictures as well, which certainly showed the devastating wrath of the rain bomb.
    600mls is way beyond the line.
    Glad to see blues from your side.
    Thank you very much for sharing this lovely sky capture with my challenge πŸ™‚
