Well, as they say, when it rains it pours! No rain to speak of for about 3 months...and then THIS! We were lucky, although I was a bit worried looking out the back french doors that I might have to start putting towels along the bottom of the door. A fellow school mum had her games room 6 inches under water, and part of the roof of the local shopping centre collapsed, and the whole place was flooded. Luckily, it seems no-one was hurt, but the damage bill is going to be huge. Why can't mother nature just start a little earlier and a little less ferociously instead of suddenly deciding she has to make up for lost time?! A few pics to give you an idea...not mine though, you wouldn't catch me out there with my camera (or without it either!)
Phew! It's almost 5pm now, and I had hoped that all that rain might bring us a cool change, but no...it's been hot and sticky today. When, oh when, is Autumn really going to start?!
