Rain, rain and more rain!

Not exactly sure how much rain we have had (must check out meter), but we have quite a bit.  I don't think the rain stopped at all yesterday.  I went to Launceston, and my shoes are completely wet through, even now, still sopping wet!!  Anyway, while driving along here in our local town yesterday when I came back, I noticed heaps of water running along a street, under the bridge and through a park area..... I drove to the other side and stopped to take this quick pic:

 
This pic (below) is just off the main shopping area.  There is a small bridge to the right, and usually you can walk under there, but as you can see the water is pretty high through it:
 
 
To the right of the top pic, the footbridge..... Ummmmm....... What footbridge?! LOL
 

The rain was even coming in further in my front entry than usual:

 
We have had some rain overnight, it has now stopped, but sun is shining, but its WINDY!  I must go and see how much the water has gone down......

Hope today is drier for you and your shoes, Sarah! It's been really cold here, with lots of rain. Clouding over now, but earlier was lovely and sunny and (almost) warm; Peter and I enjoyed a walk over to the farmer's market by the lake, chatting to people and admiring the birds and the lovely reflections in the water.

Glad to hear the rain has now stopped, we are having lovely sunny days in NSW! Hope you get the same soon too!

We sure did have a lot of rain, it was like that here to. I'm glad to see a little bit of sun today.
