No....not me......Mother Nature.
Last friday we had the tail end of cyclone Yasi, and boy did it rain.
My heart goes out to those who were lashed by it. Here in Victoria, those on Queensland and New South Wales. Not to mention the fires in Western Australia. What a country!!

In the words of Dorothea Mackeller from her poem "My Country", how true they are!!

I love a sunburnt country, A land of sweeping plains, Of ragged mountain ranges,  Of droughts and flooding rains. I love her far horizons, I love her jewel-sea, Her beauty and her terror - The wide brown land for me!

Thankfully we survived with no damage. Our wonderful new roof fixing the leaks and internal water features we used to have!!!

We had about 140mm(5 1/2inches) of water in 12 hours!!
Down at Mum and Dad's the creek overflowed, though not as bad as it could have been. I took this photo about an hour after it stopped raining.

 The creek at mum & dad's which is usually just a trickle or dry!!

 The Birdsland car park where only 2 years ago we had bushfires!!

The water logged streets the day after the rain.

I'll pop some of our R&R photos next time.
Till then

Live It, Love It, Enjoy It
