|My front garden on Monday.|
On my first trip back to the UK after my first winter in Bodrum c.1983, I bought a pair of knee-high rubber riding boots. I was extremely proud of them and especially loved the leather lining. Did I have a horse? No. Did I ride? No. Were they the most useful foot-ware I ever bought? Yes. I still have them and wish my legs were svelte enough to get into them. They were the only boots that were high enough to ford the rivers that Bodrum roads turn into after a heavy rainfall. I was under the impression that we now had super drainage around the Bodrum peninsula and that the days of the flash flood were over, but mother nature knows better. On Monday between 77 and 85 kgs of rain fell in a hour (that's over 3 inches in UK terms) and the drainage systems gave up the ghost. There are pictures of what looks like a tidal wave running down Bodrum's main street.
