This past weekend we had a huge amount of rain in Melbourne. My house is close to the usually shallow, slow running "Diamond Creek". But that all changes when we have a big downpour. It's amazing just how much this little creek changes into a very deep and quite furious river so quickly. After one such storm a few years ago this so called creek took out not only the foot bridge, but also the vehicle bridge as well. Well a brand new foot and vehicle bridge were built and have both survived quite a few downpours. That is until this past weekend!!! The vehicle bridge was fine but the foot bridge didn't fair quite as well. It's like some huge platypus or beavers have moved a forest to make a dam. I just had to get down there and get some shots. The water has now subsided until next time.
