We spent ours checking the BOM radar constantly and driving around looking at flood waters.
We were unable to leave our town as all roads are cut.
It is still raining and our river is expected to peak sometime this afternoon.
The main street is expected to go under, this hasn't happened since 1999.
If that does happen, we may have water views.
Muddy brown flood water, but water none the less.
I am checking the police reports on Facebook every minute and now they are using the word
This word is making me feel nervous.
It is making me feel claustrophobic.
How long will we be cut off for?
We are safe up on the highest hill (and that is very high) in town.
We have access to supermarkets.
But even the supermarkets will run out of stock with no trucks able to get in.
However, there are others in our state, and our country, that have lost everything and are really suffering.
So no more complaining here.
This is what our town looked like yesterday.
Coming from a farming family, I feel so badly for the farmers who have lost so much, and have months of starting over ahead.
