It was a pleasant day this Sunday .. until a huge dark cloud came slowly over at about 17:30 and dropped about 30mm of rain in an hour!! Wow Wee!!

But we didn’t have any flooding onto our building area, just surface water in little puddles here and there. The defences we built to hold back the workshop and the Loke runoffs worked very well. The workshop water was collected and poured into our swimming lane, and the Loke ran down and even though it managed to get deep enough to climb over our berm across the driveway, the overflowing water went further down and away from our building site – phew!



It did collect down at the bottom of the garden around our living quarters and formed a fairly large “lake” but it didn’t quite (phew again!) reach our floor level at the store room and front doors!!
