Thanks...glad you liked them...the river should be peaking about now...so hope it doesn't go over the levie wall in Maclean...if you could see it from the lookout in town...there would be water as far as your eye could see...it does look so amazing and to think that so much can fall from the sky...

Hello Sandy. I have been watching these floods on TV. Huge amounts of rain. But in anyway we need this rain probully not as much as you have right now, but the ground will soak it all up and hopefully fillup all the dams etc and rivers. We are having storm wet condition too at the moment. Our first big rain for the winter. Its great, We love it. All the farmers are running around getting ready for seeding.Great for our garden. Thanks for you suggestion about that TREE. If does look like you have shown in photo. The person who took this photo didn't seem to know either what it was, yours seem to be very much like it.But in anyway, its a great trees as all trees are in there different ways.Glad you dropped by as now I can look at your photos too. Thanks again for commenting on the Tree.Best Regards to you Sandy, from, David. Albany Western Australia.

Hello David...so glad to hear you are finally getting some rain over there...know you badly need it..so that is great...

I'll send you some of this as well...as we are over saturation point...we have had so much rain these last few months that we will be glad to see the end of it...

We still have to wait for the peak of the high tide tonight to see if it breaks the levie walls and whether Yamba will get any flooding...so we have our fingers crossed that all will go well...

With high tides...flood waters coming down...and 90 to 100 klm onshore winds..it doesn't look pretty...but we may be lucky...

I think the tree may be a Banyan...or in a similar family...it really is lovely isn't it...the photo I linked you too isn't mine...I just did a search for it...but there was a tree like this one up north when I lived there...they are amazing..

Best wishes to you and hope you get the rain you wish for...all the best from Sandy ;)

I saw yesterday that one place over your way had 400mm of rain, thats 16 inches of rain, Hard to beleiev so rain can fall in one place and be dry much in another.I can see now why you want it to stop. We live 30 miles north of Albany on the southcoast of Western Australia up the Albany Highway, so we usally get rain in anyway here.He some earlyer, but it didn't continue until now and it great as i said.But its all heading east you r way, but may miss you and slip away down to Tassy instead Must take a closer look at your photo soon, but need a cup of tea now instead, See you soon Sandy, Best Regards, David :-))
