big puddle

February 14, 2010

I posted pictures just recently of a very dry Lake George. The pic above was taken yesterday, after Canberra recorded 104mm of rain over three days.  The last time Canberra got rain like that was 2002.  Still a long, long way to go before anything like a lake reappears, but after being dry for so long, this giant puddle was enough to attract a steady stream of motorists to the lookout.

rain !

This is the view out an upstairs window today.  It has been raining the last couple of days, best rain for months.  The gun trees have been shedding bark recently and the colour looks great in the wet.

It does occasionally rain in Canberra

It’s been cold and wet in Canberra the last couple of days – so the obvious thing to do was to get out and about!  I’ve been staying with a friend in Cook, so went for a walk up nearby Mt. Painter.  Came across an area where tussocks of grass had been up rooted and left scattered about – could there be a wombat about? Something else?  Fairly sure it wasn’t human activity.  Anyway, as some cold rain started to blow in off the mountains, I made a funny grass man.
