Spring in Australia seems to have been very wet this year and it hasn’t been all that warm where I live (yet) either. For mid-November it’s still quite cool with the odd day of warm sunshine which we relish.
As I haven’t been able to walk my usual route due to soggy wet paddocks, I’ve taken to walking along the Tumbarumba Creek when I’m in town. It’s a nice little circuit that gets me out in the fresh air and I’ve been monitoring the level of the creek during the recent wet weather.
Some days the path has been muddy and almost impassable and other days, like yesterday the path has been completely underwater. The creek has flooded more times in the past month than I’ve ever known it to. The sound of the water pushing its way down the creek is amazing, so loud and wild!
While the flooding isn’t good, it’s not as bad as some areas in the country where houses and businesses have flooded for the third time in as many weeks. Our rain gauge has measured 165mm so far in November, that’s a lot of water on top of already soggy wet ground!
I remember my father telling us to take our shoes off if we were walking home from school in the rain, rather than ruin our shoes and this image, courtesy of Pexels.com, says it perfectly. Jumping in puddles is fun regardless of our age! Thanks for the great advice dad.
Becky has her Squares challenge running for the month of November, where we can share any photo on the theme of walking, as long as it’s square. You can see Becky’s Day 15 post here – A familiar place. She is posting daily but invites anyone to join her whenever they feel like it.
I hope you enjoyed my square photos today, hopefully the rain will ease soon but the weather predictions aren’t looking too positive on that front! Thinking of all those who are seriously impacted by floods and bad weather.
