Long overdue rain

It has been many weeks since we have had decent rain here in Metung and yesterday that situation was remedied with a vengeance. We received  103mm of rain during the night and day.

Needless to say it was more than the driveway could cope with and the road outside our house was almost covered from side to side.

Our dry riverbed overflowed its banks so we will need to build it up on that side for when we next get such a heavy downpour of rain.

      We certainly have a bit of repair work to do.
      Have you finished with your winter snows?
