Rain, Yep that wet stuff that that falls from the sky, the stuff we don’t often see in Townsville, not like on THE PALUMA RANGE.. Nine inches (225mm) in 24 hours of gusty, heavy, slanty, straight, beautiful rain.
Our rain gauge which measures six inches overflowed this morning. How Exciting. This is what living in North Queensland is like.
My husband shifted daughter’s car from the road in the middle of the night (in the pouring rain) in case the road flooded.
Our back yard is all sodden and squishy and the paving blocks are underwater.
Plants are dripping and heavy and in some cases busy storing water for later.
The Giant Maiden Hair Fern has decided to open up new leaves which strangely are always brown.
The sound of rain on the roof and the symphony of frogs and probably cane toads has abated, but the birds are still too wet to sing. I’m feeling all peaceful and happy this Tuesday in Townsville. Time for a Cuppa.
How is Tuesday in your part of the world?
Do you get torrential tropical rain?
