A Soggy Scene

Today, it rained.  It did a lot of that.  Then, pleased with its efforts, it did it a considerable bit more.

Here is a picture taken by Younger Daughter on her way back from work.  Heavy vehicles creating a wake. Boating home?


There were also a number of rivers and lakes where there normally aren’t, and much traffic chaos generally ‘wash’ in evidence.  Maybe the drought has broken?

Our large portapool runneth over after looking a bit sick, level-wise, up to the end of last week.  Now, at last, I can waste some of it to get the bottom clean.

  1. This may sound odd (but not coming from me): the clouds look lovely! So gentle on the eyes. I really must have been a bat in a prior life! 😐

    amazing to think Blighty is having sun and no rain right now. Guess you are having it for us. I’d like to say thank you, but not sure it would be appreciated 🙂


  3. Ek is dankbaar vir elke druppel reën

    You know what they say; when it rains, well, stuff gets wet. Water does that, you know.

    I’ve seen many pictures of Toti and the floods. Here, up north, it has been rumbling all night, but nary a drop of rain.

    Yay yay, I’m the first to “like” this! Love the rainy pics. Yes that rain does indeed look pleased with itself.

      It was remarkably good at what it did. It also brought cold and hectic wind, and then (most improbably) even added a bit of thunder and lightning. I didn’t think that happened with chilly conditions!
