Rain on the lagoon


A set of three low pressure centres are combining out in the Pacific and drawing another stream of moisture on to our coast.  Today, a walk in the pouring rain down to the Cove covered head to toe in waterproof gear gave proof to the adage that "there is no bad weather, only bad clothing."

I watched the rain fall on three mergansers sitting on a log, curious about the tide so high that it was flowing into the lagoon.  Wondered how many raindrops have fallen today.  Billions? Trillions?
