As you may .. or may not .. know, there has been some crazy arse weather here in the last few days. Now, after the cyclone has passed and much of the state is flooded and in clean up mode, I will mention that it is hot .. HOT! The humidity is at least 90% and we are drinking water by the litres .. which is a good thing!
After I dropped the kids off at school for their first day back, I took the dogs for a walk. They had been cooped up in the only dry spots on the deck and under the house for four days so I thought they might like a walk around the neighbourhood to see what had happened.
Thankfully we don't get any flooding where we are but the creek overflows its banks and many houses along the track have some nice ( brown ) water views! Much of the water had moved along leaving the creek extra high. You can see the flattened trees, bushes and silt where the water came up to. Again, the dog park suffered from the raging, overflowing creek .. the fence is down .. again.
This is one of the trees that was knocked down along the path .. Baxter needed to leave his mark and photo bombed me!
