Rain, Rain, Go Away

Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas. As they say it never rains but it pours and believe Us it is pouring here in the sunny Mangamahu valley.  The storm is the tail end from a cyclone that has caused devastation in Australia.  In fact it has been raining so much and there is more rain to come that there has been a state of emergency declared this afternoon.  Evacuations of homes in Wanganui will commence tomorrow.  The mayor says the flooding could reach levels of “historical precident”.

Daddy is in Wellington and is trying to get home, hopefully tonight.  Don’t worry about the three bestest maremmas in all the land.  We are safe and warm, snoozing inside.

Here are some photos taken by aunty this afternoon at about 5 pm of the Mangawhero River, which is about 1.6 km (just under a mile)  from our place.

We are about 30 km (18 miles) from Wanganui and the weather prediction for the next few days is not good.  Due to flooding and slips we could be cut off for up to a week depending on how high the rivers get.  We will keep you posted.

Love the three bestest maremmas in all the land and their family.

    We went through that about a month ago here in the US west.

    We are really sorry for all the rain, it should be beautiful weather. However, we have had nothing but rain and flooding for over a month. Hope it stops soon!

  7. We hope the river doesn’t come knocking on your door. We’ll be thinking about you.
