A couple of days ago, on Thursday, we had a fairly unusual weather event. High winds throughout the day and then just around dusk there was a torrential downpour of rain. Huge amounts of water fell in just a few minutes.
I managed to capture some footage of the aftermath which I noticed just as I was shutting up the house for the night at around 5.30pm.
One good thing that came from this is that my swales, designed to capture and calm water run-off for the garden quickly filled up and there was even some water in the frog pond for the first time in over a year. Sadly my swales were not sufficient to prevent quite an amount of run-off going down to the creek below but thankfully none of this was from my garden areas.
