It's not the thunder I worry about ...

... it's the lightning.  And there was a lot of it this afternoon in Brisbane.  We lost power briefly - five times, and the microwave was having a breakdown, bleating pitifully each time the power switched back on, poor thing.

I took a short video of the back yard, praying that the lightning would find the trees more alluring than me.

I was going to call it A River Runs Through It, but I think that's already been done.

The authorities in their wisdom have decreed that water restrictions still apply - no watering gardens (ha!) between 10am and 4pm, or at all on Mondays.  Unless there are scary storms on Mondays, of course.

What a summer.  I'm ready for a little sun.

Oh, là, là, a real river ... you do not get out of the water!
I sympathize. Here, it is raining today but not too much.

I believe that in real estate terms what you have there is a Water Feature.
