An excessive amount of water

Water extends across Strathnaver Drive by the speedbump.

As at 08 August 2022 we've had about the same amount of rain as in all of 2021, and it shows. Paddocks have new ponds, the lakes on Reay Mackay Grove are starting to consume the trees and bushes around them, and the good old Strathnaver puddle has again stretched across the road.

What's new though is that the lake that develops in rainy weather in the Miratana block has actually overflowed nearly across the road, rather than just teetering on the edge of the grass verge.
