Flooded in from hill to hill. No damage to the cabin thank goodness. Even the blinds survived this time. Having sat through three massive storms (in the cabin) in the past 8 years I have created an emergency plan... so last Friday I filled buckets of water to wash with and flush the loo, bottles of drinking water, packed up the verandah, tied down the blinds and got my camp cooker at hand. It's been a wild couple of nights with little sleep as the strength of the wind and rain made itself known. I've never seen so much flood water on the property. No power this morning so it's camping style breakfast. My landlord has just come to check on me... bless him. So it's cuppa time and a settle in for another day of quiet listening to the wind and rain. I'm grateful to be warm and dry and hope all my loved ones are safe in the Shire and Queensland.
