The link above will lead you to a satellite photo of the cyclone that hit our New Zealand friends last week, bringing torrential downpours.

That site also has frequent satellite photos of the smoke plumes from the ongoing California fires.

Hi everyone
 
I have just taken the dogs outside for a walk during one of the only fine breaks we have had in the last week. I was wandering over the farm to look at the flooding and the dogs headed towards the daffodils. Here are some photos of Ellouise in the daffodil beds . . . apparently, according to Dad, the water is over his gumboot tops in places!
Bring on the sunshine I say!
