Then we got a lot of drizzle, and on Monday night it arrived.
Heavy rain, then lashing rain, then hail, and thunder.
Poor little Lulu was very distressed and asked for "protection" so I picked her up on the bed. Strange how that works for kids and dogs. Maybe they are really just the same creatures, in different body shapes.
Then on Tuesday I saw that there was still a "drift" of the fine hail we had had about midnight.

I went out to Carrington Falls to check the flow in the Upper Kangaroo River. It was flowing reasonably, but anything but in flood. But it had been nearly dry the weekend before.

|Locals might note this proposed road closure|
up to 45 minutes at a time.

It had certainly had a good feed on my leg.
