This is the personal blog of Ian Ker, who was Councillor for the South Ward of the Town of Vincent from 1995 to 2009. I have been a resident of this area since 1985. This blog was originally conceived as a way of letting residents of Vincent know what I have been doing and sharing thoughts on important issues. I can now use it to sound off about things that concern me.

Bursting Their Banks

One of the things I love about living opposite Hyde Park is the variety of weather and scenery.

Today, I thought I'd take advantage of a sunny break in the rain to see how the lakes were doing. No sooner had a I got down there than the heavens opened and I had to run back again!

And the lakes? They're doing fine and are actually over both the new and old banks for the first time this year. With lots more rain forecast, could we see the causeway between them underwater as happened some years ago?

Even our black swan brood seems to have been forced to seek higher ground - don't think they'd have expected to share it with zebras, though.
