The winter storms are back with a vengeance. Polemi had 46mm of rain overnight, and it showed this morning. Our webcam presented a sorry picture, but I was curious to see what was happening in other parts of the village...
This was the view from the webcam, but what did it look like close up?
That's normally a field. The farmer was out pruning his vines yesterday. I don't think he will be there today.
This is the view to the right of the webcam. If you look on the right you can see a black horizontal line at the edge of the picture, just over half way up. This is part of a drain they built last summer. Had it not been for this drain we would have been flooded. As it was, one of our neighbours still had some flooding, so not everybody was as lucky as we were.

This is the view to the left of the webcam. Fortunately, water was flowing in this direction, away from the houses. I walked up to have a closer look.
This was a bit weird. There was obviously a drain in the corner of the field, but because there was so much water it created this whirlpool.
