God, it started gushing down. And getting cold. Dark, cold, rainy. Autumn. I even got the autumnal cold everyone is required to get. Everyone gets this, right? Right?
Anyway. It rained and rained and stormed. Quite great actually as long as you don't have to be out there. Or if you're properly dressed and can enjoy it. Which I did the other day. I got my gumboots and umbrella and headed for the river just down the street.
The river was quite high already, so I tried to make a picture of that.
Was highly entertaining. Also had those gumboots for a good few months now and finally had found a moment to use them. Makes for a pretty happy me.
But this is what was the next day.
Woah! This is where I walked, people. Just the day before. Crazy.
And the river went even higher.
Okay. It's not only my bad skills, but also my camera is shite. But you get the idea. My. Goodness.
The last time it was that bad was 6 years ago. I was on crutches at the time and guess what? It was autumn.
Rainy season indeed.
The water is now receding, leaving even more of a muddy mess behind. Wonder how long it'll take for grass to grow... Hopefully not too long. I want my riverbank back!
So we had a few days spring, about two weeks or so autumn and now it all looks like summer? I don't trust it.
