Do you love listening to the rain when you are all snuggled up and cosy? I do! But you couldn't help but hear the rain we've been having here in Hastings, NZ. I was out in it and for the first time in my life... I think... I had to drive through huge puddles of surface flooding. A little nerve racking!
And not great for all those who have had their houses breached by the waters!
The rains have stopped now but for how long? As I write this the sun has just broken through. Everything at my place looks shiny and clean and yet I know there are so many for whom that will not be true this morning as they survey the damage and start the cleanup.
I didn't see a rainbow but you would hope there was one there!
