New Year, new wet season


We are now more than 3 weeks into the new year and I am yet to post. I can’t even blame my visitors, as they have been home for almost 2 weeks now. Even the piglets are 6 weeks tomorrow! 2 should be leaving us this weekend (though I have a feeling the weather may delay that some how).
At the moment we are on severe rain warnings. They are predicting ‘several hundred’ millimetres over the next week. Due to ex- tropical cyclone Oswald, which is currently making its way down the Queensland coast.... Just in time for Australia day!  
So far this week we have had about 12.5mm and the tanks are already over flowing. So am not really looking forward to the down pour. In previous weeks we have had very large tides- 6meters + and have welcomed the fresh water, as it helps flush out the crabs in the local creek. Something we have benefitted from. But think the tides are much lower this week, which given the rain would be a blessing.
So will keep you posted and keep the snorkel handy.
