Heavy rain – falling ,
torrents rage, rivers fill – flood
dog needs walk – folly.

When you choose an alternative lifestyle with no idea what you're doing and make it up as you go.
Yikes! And I was almost ready to move there. :>)
This is a few years ago and they are currently suffering from drought which will inevitably end with flood. You probably wouldn’t find it cold enough (although that is why we moved too cold) and you would certainly find it too hot (which is why we don’t find our tropical paradise hot.)
Wonderful, Irene! A slightly depressing but nevertheless excellent range of shots of NSW flooding. Now, if only those times would come back – to a degree!!!
It will M.R. There is nothing surer but it would be nice to get some rain soon.
Yer right, of course: it’s just a neverending cycle. With, as you rightly point out, totally uneven bits …
Oh dear. Hope you are okay and have enough supplies. 😀
This was a couple of years ago and I posted it as I needed photos with the letter F. I think that everybody in that area would actually enjoy a flood at the moment as they are starting to really feel the drought.
Did you have the earth quake that hit the coast north of Wellington?
Yes we did. I tried to take a video of the lights moving but I am afraid it was rather tame compared to some of the others uploaded not the news websites. 😀
I think I’d be terrified in an earthquake. Glad you are okay.
I’m ok. My family aren’t. They are terrified of them. I tend to sleep through them. We get them on a regular basis.
Cambridge was one of my favourite places on the North Island (I think that is quite near you). I had thought I could live there. I’ve just changed my mind. 😝
I think you need to check out a map of New Zealand. Cambridge is closer to Auckland, not Hastings. They don’t get earthquakes there as much as here. You would be safe there. 😀
I’m thinking of Hamilton it is close to. Yes I’ll have to look to see where Hastings is.
These photos could be here in the UK, especially where I live in Somerset, with all the flooding! I am in touch with my friends in California and they are having a severe drought there right now, not a raincloud in sight.
It’s the same here in Australia. We haven’t had any rain to speak of since early winter. By now we are usually floating. I guess it will come Feb/March. I can’t believe we’ll have a wet season without any. The last few days the humidity has arrived so it could be around the corner.
Let’s hope so.
Wow! I don’t do well in floods despite the fact that I used to swim whenever I had the chance. After the basement flooded, I never wanted it to rain again.
I can understand that. Cleaning up after a flood is my least favourite job. The mud and silt get everywhere not to mention items you might loose. I hope it rains but that you don’t get another flood in the basement.
