In the past two and a half weeks we have had 7 inches of rain.
This photo was taken from my back door. You can see the flooded creek in the background.
In the time we have been here, this is the first time we have seen the creek high enough to overflow into our paddock below the house.
The gate into our creek paddock.
This is where we usually swim.
This is just to the left of where our crossing is.
It is just awesome (in the true meaning of the word) to see this much water rush past just below the house.
As a comparison, this is what the creek looked like on Father's Day. Calm clear water!
