We have had rain by the bucket-loads
for the past month

For the second time this season,
the river jumped the banks and flooded the street

This has never happened in my four years of living here

You know it's a big deal
when the locals are taking photos too

Although it is a mild inconvenience,
I find it sort of interesting to have a weather related 'incident'

For the most part, houses and buildings have been fine
It's mostly fields that have taken the brunt

My friend wondered if the flooding coincided with the full moon
And sure enough, the flooding occurred just two days after the full moon
with all its tidal gravity

Funny to see swans and sea birds swimming in pastures

Today... blue skies and not a drop of rain :)

Have a great week
