Tropical summer rain february 2010

Tropical summer rain february 2010, originally uploaded by gypsy woman1.

The rain has come with a vengeance,the radio reported 300mm to 400mm. The rain gauge, which holds 125mm, had overflowed when I went to read it at 10am. The garden is slowly turning into a lake…
I decided to move “Sunnyboy” out of the cover of the car port to test if the leak had been fixed. An hour later I went to check it…..
O.M.G…. I lifted the back and a flood of water poured out…
Well I guess the good news is that we still have time to fix it before we hit the road. I put it back under cover and dried the inside. Will now have to wait till the rain clears before we can look at it. Hamish, our tenant who works in a panel beating shop, has said he will look at it for us.
16 days to “D-day”….

  1. G’day James, thanks for comment. Sunnyboy goes into the “doctors” today. Hopefully he comes back all fixed up…

    Wow looks like the rain is falling down big time. I hope Sunnyboy is feeling better soon. I can now check your blog anywhere on my iPhone. So I plan to keep up to date more.
