The Day After The Storm

Monday night, Melbourne’s sky flashed, growled and opened up. Sheets of water were dumped. Before daylight Miss 5 had hopped into bed with us with about 6 comfort items; her soft toys and blankies.
This morning the school run included a flume ride for the kids. We parted the water with two giant side sprays as we went through. At school pickup, the back road was still a lake, especially in the dips.

Wow! We do get floods here at times, especially now during monsoon season. Glad your house remained dry!

Boyo loves when the Welshman swerves through the massive puddles on the side of the road! It doesn’t really work when in my little hatchback and not in his 4WD!

I guess that trip to school will be the topic of conversation for the rest of the week.

The kids must have enjoyed that ‘special’ ride to school. The storms in Brisbane recently had my boys all excited. Now the little one thinks its going to hail every time it gets a little overcast.
