More flood photos

February 17, 2009

While I was having a lovely nana nap, Robbie went out and took more pictures of the flood waters. I wish I’d bought more chocolate and bread yesterday now. We may be stranded for a couple of days:

I imagine riding a bicycle underwater would be quite difficult

Can you believe they tried to ride across?

    Leave to an Aussie to try the impossible. LOL
    Damn, girl I hope your house is okay and you don’t run out of food. Or wine!

      The house is fine, it’s about 20 metres above river level and a five minute walk away. We just can’t go anywhere. I’ve been ticking stuff off on my to do list, catching up on sleep after working all weekend, and tonight I will be writing. Kind of hope the roads are still cut tomorrow so I score another day off.

    Isn’t it amazing that we live in the same bloody country…? You have floods and we have bushfires – if we could only somehow blend the two, then both horrible situations could be resolved…..

    Hey Diane,
    I know how you feel, I always panic about food when it looks like it may flood. Hope the water goes down soon.

    Keep safe!

    We were living in Coffs when there were the 2001 floods. :o)

    Take care,

    Hi Diane,
    Well last night was better, eh? Rain easing so far. Let’s hope it continues this way.
