Winter is certainly here. Make no mistake about it, we have had an extremely cold week (I have taken my hot water bottle to work on a daily basis) and it feels like you’re breathing in ice when you get home at night. This only meant one thing, we were headed for a bit of a rainy weekend. And oh boy did the rain not dissapoint. Friday was pretty awful, Saturday surprised us with a stunner and then on to Sunday for the wettest of days I can remember in ages. I woke up to the sound of rain and it has pretty much continued all day.
Heading to the parentals for lunch I encounted river upon river with blocked drains. Thank goodness I’ve recently replaced my windscreen wipers, if you haven’t done so in a while I would suggest you get right on that!
My parents driveway was filling up with water at a hell of a rate and the grass is pretty water logged. The circle on the way to their house was completely flooded on one side. Driving through was quite an adventure.
Take a look at some of the pics! Dress up warmly kids. When in doubt bring a spare hot water bottle (or hottie as I like to refer to mine …)

The main pic is driving slowly through the circle! Crazy rain hey?! Who left the tap on?
