Well didn't the skies open up today and fill the earth with water. I could hear the water pouring over the eaves troughs as I was working in my office, so I donned my raincoat and some rubber gloves, climbed up the step ladder and starting removing the twigs from the down spout. The water came gushing out and the problem was solved in no time!
Then I grabbed my camera because this was a really cool shot. My camera and I returned to my desk a little wet - but worth it. A hot cup o tea followed.
