Did You Hear the Rain?

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!

Yes indeed, lots of rain down my way, and I had the good luck to spot two rainbows. cheers Marie

That was lucky Marie. I have to say it is clouding over here again. Hubby trying to mow soggy lawns and I having an 'in' day!

Crazy huh? 5 houses evacuated on Napier Hill (luckily not the side we're on!). Great to see the sun the next day.
