Flood water

We had 110mls of rain in one day! I was thrilled that our house kept us dry. At least five work mates had leaks! It was so very wet and noisy that we brought Milo inside, all soggy.

I dried him as best I could and Bethany kept him amused.

The rain stopped overnight so I hopped on my bike to ride to work and found this sight. This is a paddock, not a lake.

I had to ride through flood water! It's going across the road just behind the tree. This was at 8 o'clock this morning.

I rode past again at 7.30 this evening and the water was no longer on the road. I do wonder why the cows are in the water - only half their paddock was submerged.


  1. Aww he looks so cute with wet fur! that's an amazing sight though. Glad to hear you're keeping dry! :)

  2. Maybe the cows just wanted wet feet for a change! I hope it cools down for you, otherwise you'll get fierce humidity!

  3. Very cute looking dog. I'm surprised he can see anything with that epic fringe :)

  4. I'm glad to hear that Australia got some rain. I hope it becomes more usual with the whole drought problem there.
