There’s a timeless saying for when it’s teeming rain; It’s raining cats and dogs.
Well, I have a new one… It’s raining trucks and utes… and buses!!
After experiencing our fifth flood in four weeks (previous 15yr record being 2 floods in 2 years) we are noticing a consistency in this. Because it rains, we flood, and our road is littered with vehicles – and travellers! Trucks, trailers, utes, cars, caravans, campervans, and finally a bus! A BIG bus!
Yesterday we wandered and waded through calf-deep water to see this abandoned measure of high rainfall. And the puns were flowing…
Did you know that ‘bus’ spelt backwards is ‘sub’. Short for ‘submarine’, ‘submerged’ and ‘subotage’. (Okay – so I cheated with that one.) But kind of appropriate, given that this particular bus/sub had at one point been sitting in 1 metre of flowing water.
Life is never dull for a curious Kat.
