the river is rising

Yes it's raining, pouring and flooding. We are tucked up inside building massive lounge cubbies, acting out a variety of flood scenarios, soaking up the last few hours with our lovelies (Jen, Rod, Lily and Saul) and eating leftover curry from last night's curry night. We are about to venture out to check Lavenders Bridge in town, but it, like most bridges around here are under, so what we are actually going to see are the rivers flood levels. Yes, the rivers have risen and are continuing to rise. It has only been raining for a day or two but we are getting a lot of water that is heading down from up North. We are not cut off (yet, the road leading into Bellingen sometimes goes under) but we do know many people who are.  If you want to have a peek there is a webcam at Kombu, where you can check out the flood waters in town, minute by minute. Hope you are all keeping dry, well occupied and safe.

  3. Gorgeous photos as always Jay. As most of Australia has, I've been thinking of all you folk living up that way as these heavy rains fall. Our friends in Byron have been tucked up inside too. The dolls 'hospital' looks to be totally engrossing the children in your home very sweet :) Stay safe and dry xxx and please rain you can subside now!
