Not on Walden Pond.

And then there were clouds, threatening as clouds do. It’s been a weird week in Australia and terrible floods in New South Wales in particular. I don’t know what’s worse – fire or flood!

West of Ballarat about fifty ks

  1. The last photo is really clever with that little bit of water down the road.
    I think the damage caused by the floods is almost as bad as the damage caused by the fires.


    1. Yes Jane. Andrew Petcher asked the question. I am rather of the opinion that fire is worse because it is more erratic. It can leap great distances and burn spots and leave one house untouched. With a flood we have a better idea of the extent because we have good scientific mapping of the terrain. But it is only a small distinction – both are terrible and NSW is fortunate that loss of life has been so minimal.
