When the sky comes back to earth

The view from the deck at Icy Creek

The view from the deck at Icy Creek

This is my kind of day – rain, thunder, mist, fog, soggy Labradors, and the sound of the water tanks filling up, instead of being emptied in a frantic effort to save thirsty trees. The pic above is the view from the deck in the intermission between two violent rainstorms. All up we’ve had more than 30mm (a bit over an inch) since midday, and the ground is even starting to get muddy.
