Flooding rains


I haven't been writing here regularly the last few months, and when I do, I seem to reporting yet another extreme weather event.
In January I was writing about our run of 45 degree weather and catastrophic fire warnings. In March, a mini tornado travelled through the bush at the back of our property and turned 20 metre eucalypts to mere sticks.

 
Today, we are marooned. All the roads into town are cut off with flood waters. And it is STILL raining. The kids aren't in school today, and my plans are shelved. Fortunately, we are stocked with food for a few days at least. Hopefully the floods will drain away by the time I need to venture out.
