Rain, Rain and more rain

Overnight we have had the most rainfall since July 2005. A total of 61mm fell around the Gold Coast area that we call home. We so desperately need it and it is falling over our catchment areas. Thank goodness.

The downside for us is that we have not had our landscaping done yet around our beautiful new home. So our backyard now looks like this:

The pictures don't really show how much water is lying around, I took them very early this morning - still dark - the concrete structure is our pool, yet to be completed.

Our rainwater tank is filling up though and that's a good thing.

The forecast is for more rain over the next couple of days.

I'll have to get out my gumboots!!

So sorry about all the rain! I suppose it's good to get it, but not when it's too much at once!

Hope the backyard cleans up okay. :)
