It’s a bit wet

Fandango’s One Word Challenge: Inundate
Jez’s Water Water Everywhere #70

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

Afterward there is always a clean up

It certainly is weather for ducks

I am quite safe and secure just a bit soggy

Is it?

Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge – Pick a Topic from my Photo

A bit of Aussie music and some scenes

Well played Council

It is a rather funny place Grafton, the nearest City to my place. There are streets that start and seemingly end at a T-intersection with a park, the Racecourse or railway line as Through Street does, but these streets continue on the other side.

I had many a confused drive around when I first moved here looking for a particular business or house number which seemingly didn’t exist. Eventually went to the Tourist Information Centre and got a map. Yes an actual paper map!!!

Creepy images or are they?
