This morning I was coming here to share with you these lamington cupcakes that I made for an Australia Day BBQ we attended yesterday on the public holiday.
Instead I am going to show you these.
This is what we woke up to this morning.
We can't even get out our driveway.
We have never had a flood go so high, so quickly.
Looking to the left.
Looking to the right.
The white car brigade!
As you can see our house is perfectly safe.
We are looking after a friend's car.
The water rose so quickly they couldn't get back across from yesterday's party.
Another friend's son took them home in his 4WD, in the meantime we got a phone call from them to say we had better get his parent's across as it was rising so fast.
When we got there 5 minutes later it was already too late.
VCH had to get the boat and get them across, as we ferried other friends home who had ducked into town to get some flood emergency supplies, but managed to walk across.
VCH then had to ferry some other people from the town side to a waiting husband on this side.
They are expecting the river in town to peak just below the levy wall at 9am- but quite frankly they are not sure what is happening as it has all been so quick!
Hoping all our friend's down river have made it to safety as they are evacuating those areas.
Don't think we will be leaving for our beach holiday anytime soon!
