flooding pics

January 12th, 2011 at 07:47 am

A couple of pictures of what it is like in my town at the moment. This was after some of the water had subsided. We were hit no-where near as bad as what other towns were, so my pictures don't really do the flood justice. Basically, just imagine an extra 6 feet of water on top of what is in this picture, at least! and that is what most of the state is like at the moment.


This path leads to a walkway underneath the bridge that is in the background, it is where I walk my dogs sometimes. Normally the river is about 15 feet below the level it is at now.


This is at the bottom of our street. To the right of this frame, there is a convenience store with an attached house where the owners live. Their hills-hoist clothesline in their backyard was submerged save for the very top of it poking out of the water. Murky brown water crept up to the verandah of their house, which is two storeys tall!


Local supermarket (carpark underneath)

    I was thinking about you and a few other friends from down under (including my SIL in New Zealand) this morning when I was watching the news. Stay safe!
