It is not uncommon for me to pass by the lake. A week or so ago I passed the southern end on a bright sunny day. I stopped briefly to look at the birds.
This week I was crossing the dam at the northern end.
On this occasion it was again sunny but the water from the previous day's rain was still flooding into the lake. Consequently there was an overflow of the excess.
This was running away on the other side of the dam.
As I stood there watching and admiring the view listening to the rush of the water an elderly gentleman and his wife stopped to look. He murmured after a while "hmm and I guess there will be a hosepipe ban in a few months " . His words certainly reflect the craziness of our weather and our ability to cope with it.
