I feel like I'm in Noah's ark...


I know Spring is a time of change and quite often when I lived up north I got use to extreme weather such as cyclones, hurricanes, heavy rain and flooding but when I moved down here to the Bay of Plenty the temperatures were similar but none of the weird weather patterns.....until now.

Winter for us was quite dry and mild but now that Spring has struck it's been non stop rain, to the point where outside our Apartment this morning manholes were overflowing with rainwater. I'm starting to feel like I'm in Noah's ark!

Linking up with Skywatch Fridays :-)

At least you are experiencing many possibilities in our earth. Come over and experience more typhoons, floods and landslides. On the other side the months of sunny weather and high humidity and temperatures come daily, hahaha, yet it is still fun.

In Auckland it stopped raining today. I hope it's the same in Bay of Plenty.

It's raining here today, only the second rainfall in about 2 months (and's it's been unusually warm). Just thinking ahead to how beautiful things will be in a few short weeks.

Hello, pretty scene and silhouettes. We are having some rain today and expecting more tomorrow. I guess it is better than being too dry. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day and weekend!

Hang in there! If it's any consolation, we are desperate for water here in S CA. It would be so nice to see rain again!!

On the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, Australia, the feeling is much the same about Spring, but our Winter was far from mild.

Yep, when the manholes lift, you are getting a lot of rain.

I know the feeling, Amy. Same up here. I dream of walking in a paddock and not squelching.

I was under the impression that the east side of the north island had the best weather. But, into each life a little rain must fall and I just think of it as awakening the spring flowers!
