Storm or a Flood

It rained and rained, the wind picked up, and more rain.  Rivers filled up and the sea arose, Bridges overflowed and roads disappeared.   It was the great storm.  Now the houses are flooded and the farms too.

Storm ———> Flood

Ring, ring

Click!! ( should not really be a click, not hang up sound should be a dis-connected sound not sure how that goes, more like Gnnnnn…… )


My non Aussie readers would not really get what I am getting at.  Terrible floods everywhere in Australia at present.  Tassie is being hit very badly.  Many have lost everything.  But as usual the Insurance companies would squirm out of paying.  Apperenty they will pay if its a storm but not if it is classified as a flood.  Rhonda and Ketut are Characters from a popular Insurance company Ad that most Aussies know about.

there is a series of these ads just giving you one of them, for a taste
