Flooding in Nimbin


Just a short video of the amount of rain falling down here in Nimbin, NSW.

Not even the birds are out. Not a sound. Apart from the rain cascading down the drive, along the stairs and flooding the road. Not even a sound from the frogs which are usually quite deafening in rainy weather.

The Goolmanghar creek has busted it banks. The roads and bridges are of course totally out of action. 

The ski is white. The mountain is shrouded in a thick whitish grey  mantle.

Dogs are inert on their pad inside the house and the cat stretched languorasly  on the sofa. All oblivious to the torrential rains that are soaking the land in a thunderous fashion 

The huge tanks that we use for our drinking water are filling up and overflowing.​

Many people are stranded in town unable to reach their destination. It will not be wise to venture on the roads at the moment. 

The 2 little bridges down the road  are totally impassable and one could be in real strife if that was attempted.

What is the best ting to do right now? Well, I am going back to my book and enjoy this lazy day.

Till next time.
