Water, part 2

Plenty of water under the bridge

A few pictures taken this morning. At the highest tide, the water level in the bottom photo is usually about a meter below the level in this picture. The water was actually backing up behind the railway bridge! This is partly because the floodgates at the Ross Dam have opened, combined with a fairly high tide this morning.

I would have taken more pictures, but it started, you know, RAINING!! The water levels had gone down but they are expected to come back up again with more of today’s rain. The most hellish thing about driving around town now is not the rain, nor the big puddles/floodwaters on the road, and it’s not even other drivers who don’t slow down or turn their lights on. It’s the potholes. The biggest I came across was close to two metres across and cut out most of the road.

But I still love the rain…

  1. Great photos Tanya. Glad you got out and about with the camera. Take care with those potholes now – you could finish up on the other side of the world.

  2. Goodness, that’s a lot of water! No wonder they call Oz a land of “doughts and flooding rains”. I’m sure you’d appreciate a happy medium.
    Yes, potholes are dangerous….they can also ruin tires….speaking from experience here.
    Thanks for posting these great photos.
    Sorry I missed out on wishing you a happy Australia Day. Glad you had a good time 🙂
    I like the colors in that quilt you’re making.
