Wild weather......and a wedding!!

Over the past few weeks we have had some rain...well, quite a bit of rain actually along with strong winds and generally crappy weather......some flooding has occurred along with a statewide blackout when the power was cut during a storm.....some areas had power restored after a few hours.....others a few days - not ideal.  To have the entire state without power was not something that has occurred before so no doubt there will be on going inquiries along with some political grandstanding to look into the reason(s) and to look at ways to prevent it happening again...... 

I took advantage of no power to have an early night and catch up on some sleep and some TV programs on the iPad before that.

A couple of weeks before the storms which took out the power and caused flooding we had rain which resulted in a bit more water than usual in our waterways.....

these pics were taken on my morning walking trail.......



..the same spot two weeks later......


First rains...... 

 ...two weeks later.....



The  doggy poop bag dispenser is the green thing sticking out of the water....this is usually high on our walking path....not so on this day!





What a difference a week makes....water back to normal level and all is bright and sunshiny....


So that was the wild weather......now for the wedding.....next time :)
