What a wet month, after late January early Februaries floods, detailed here  we received a whole heap more rain and while we might not have received quite as much as earlier in the month, it was much more intense, falling heavily in a short period of time

Here's the backyard

Back yard as a river

Our creek overflowing

So much rain it washed the bridge away !  The bridge had survived for 3 years and 5 or so floods, hopefully we can rescue it.
Foot bridge washed away

Here's where it used to cross

Creek crossing, sans bridge !

and just walking down to the creek on the track was an ordeal of torrential water

One of the disadvantages of solar and not being connected to the grid is not being able to get into the shed to to jobs using power (I have table tops, bedside chest of draws etc) needing sanding with the belt sander.  Ahh well, caught up with several  more movies and books !
