Weather watch

 I wondered what I was going to share this week as it has been a quiet time around here. But the last  24 hours gave me something, be it ever so little. A few of you might have seen the odd post where I've shown our benign Silverstream. Well it's benign in the summer but today that has changed.

We had some of this weather below today which rapidly changed
 to extremely strong winds and very heavy rain.

Resulting in a not so benign Silverstream.


A lot of sandbagging was happening in the Silverstream area during the day.  This is at the bottom of our street but our house is built quite high off the ground, luckily. The rain is still coming down, it hasn't let up since it began this morning.

So now we wait to see whether it breaches the floodbank.

Well that's snow and rain out of the way, I wonder what's next?


Oh dear, there's just been a snowy forecast for tomorrow :)


  1. Pretty stream, but good that your home is on higher ground.

  2. Oh my, you are indeed getting some rain! Stay safe, dear friend.

    Hugs and joy to you!

  3. Your weather sounds like the weather here in the Southern USA...if you do not like the weather it will change in 24 hours!! Stay safe!!

  4. Woah! A complete contrast from that benign trickle to the torrent - it is scary how quickly it can change from one to the other - stay safe x

  5. Wow that is quite a difference. Hope it has stopped raining by now.

  6. Wow!!! So glad you are high off the ground! That is quite a change in water levels! Please stay high and dry and safe! Thank you for showing us what it is like on the other side of the world! It is hot, sunny, and probably going to thunderstormy later today!

  7. Diana, that is some crazy weather! I hope things settle down and you can enjoy the sunshine soon.

  8. Hi Diana, Such drastic weather. Do take care and be safe.
    Hope you have a nice week.

  9. Gosh! There's a bit of a shock! We have had drastic weather all over the globe!

  10. I hope the sun comes out today and you have a good day. We've been having thunderstorms in the afternoons...they come on in a hurry! Hugs!
