It started raining early last week, which was nice because we’d had a few hot days and the garden needed a light watering. Then it rained on and off for five days, which was also nice because it meant we had a bit of reserve for the next hot spell. Then it started to rain seriously on Sunday and it has hardly stopped since …. so today the bridge went under for the first time this year. If it keeps raining up on the Dorrigo Plateau as predicted, we may yet be completely cut off, but for now we can still get out.
The garden is like a rice paddy but otherwise everything is OK so far.
