This morning we took a walk from home down to the Mataura River to see the river in flood. We’ve had almost endless rain since Sunday night until we woke up this morning (Wednesday) to find it had stopped. We were walking across the bridge and had neared the other side when I glanced down and noticed a determined postie was driving their scooter through a flooded lane by the river. I got a shot just as the postie successfully exited the floodwater.

The flooded lane by the river was closed to traffic. Also, see that pretty laburnum with yellow flowers…
