Now I know I promised not to moan about the weather again after our particularly soggy summer. But it would seem autumn isn’t playing fair either.
In the 10 years we have been here, we’ve never seen it like this. And just to add more drama there is more heavy rain expected today and then a repeat again next week.
Hopefully the boffins have it wrong and this is the worst of it. I won’t go on with all the moaning, I’ll just leave you with a few images. (click on the photos for a description).
If it wasn’t our driveway, it would look like quite a lovely lake!
I think 116mm overnight qualifies as a bit of rain! I’ve emptied it out so It can fill back up again in the next few days.
These drains, dug back in 1886 by hand, is saving us from would could have been a lot worse situation
Just as well there is a fence around the garden…
The parking area is about 30cm deep
Inside the big shed has about 2cm, luckily Hubby the Un-Gardener had a big clean up about two weeks ago and so nothing has come to much harm.
The bottom step off the deck is quite submerged
I still have to have to slosh over there to water the seedlings…
Come again soon – I guess I’ll be indoor gardening for a while.
