Our own tropical paradise?

And the rain continues...Timaru actually had flooded areas during the 47 mm of rainfall yesterday, with road closures and impassable fiords.  We had our own mini-flood right outside my office window at school; kids were delighted at the new area to paddle in and so we witnessed stockinged feet and school shoes wading ankle deep through the freezing water.  Needless to say the owners of the feet were severely told off!  Today the sun came out for a few hours and we were thrilled at the respite.  Not quite enough to dry up all the water, but oh the blue skies were so wonderful!  The clouds were back in the afternoon and evening.
No matter about the weather though...time to get on the ol' dancing shoes and head out for our second swing dance class.  We are loving it!  Last week we learned the basic back-step-step move; this week we advanced to a Charleston step.  Hopefully over the next four weeks we'll add heaps of moves to our limited repertoire!  Great form of exercise and plenty of laughs with Liz and Graham (perhaps I should clarify, not laughing AT anyone!!)
