fire and flood

The west coast of Tasmania continues to battle out of control fires and the east coast has been pummelled by storms. Fires and floods, an all too familiar story in the Australian landscape. It is not often though that you get them simultaneously on opposite sides of the same state, within a couple of hundred kilometres of each other. How fickle are the weather gods!

My usual walk to the basin was not so usual this morning. The slow moving river of a week ago had been transformed to a raging torrent; a brown foaming, frothy mass of coca cola water roaring and surging, sweeping everything in its path.

There used to be a path across the causeway

there is a pool somewhere under there
