I'm building an Ark

It rained for an hour and a half this morning. I risked life and limb (not to mention Weil's Disease) in my flip flops to bring you this report:

This is my soi this morning.

I'm going to build an ark.

I am planning what to take with me.

Is this freak weather or normal for the time of year?

Hi Lane, Do you know I said to some Australian neighbours (no, no, not those Neighbours!) as I paddled back home in my flip flops that I had decided that I really did need some wellies here.

I'm afraid that this is normal tropical rain in the rainy season! It's very impressive, isn't it?

Hi Lisa, Nice to see you. Yup I realised that you were up to your eyes! Waters are sinking away as we speak although it was thundering again when we came in. Ha, I love it.

Ooh, I find something really sexy about extreme weather...

It certainly is very impressive.

Will we send the fancy welly-boots on to you then?

Two by Two JJ! Sorry I've been a bit intermitant recently.

you need some orange wellies!

I hope that the ark building will not distract you from your writing.

JJ said...

Jen, Yeah, me too. It's always so hot here that extreme weather is a bit of a break from just hot, hot or more hot.

Jon, no worries about the intermittent visiting - work, eh? It sure does get in the way of blogging.

Caroline, you're right. Orange wellies, that's what I need. Or maybe orange and purple - I rather like those colours together at the moment.

Did you know that only sewerage workers can get Weil's Disease? And that it can only be caught from urine-infected water, and not from the urine itself?

So said my doctor after small girl got the stuff up her nose (don't ask how).

She got a second opinion, and a hefty dose of antibios when she came down with a 104°-fever a week later... Nasty nasty little bacterium.

Flip flops? if there are rats about, I'd recommend all-in-one waders...!
