This is what rain can do

This afternoon, after I picked my daughter up from school, we went to our local organic farm to pick up the weekly provisions. And my, what a sight along the track.


This farmer’s field is not normally a lake. The real lake is on the other side of the track and underneath it. So, the track is actually a bridge and made only of earth.

Fortunately, work is underway to create suitable drainage and make sure the bridge doesn’t collapse. However, I did feel mighty uncomfortable, once I learned that it might be best to drive across the bridge without my seatbelt on. Yikes!


About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.

    Time to walk a little, I think! Do you own a jet ski yet? B-)

    Around here we have a lot of standing water. Fords have sprung up all over on roads.

  2. Oh boy … looks like you could launch a dinghy there now!
