Guess what – it is raining. Raining a lot. The flood warning has the river that runs through our valley peaking tonight about midnight. We are already cut off – first it was slips and then the river breached it’s banks. We have been moving neighbour’s stock to higher ground and keeping an eye on their place as they are away but now it is dark it is a matter of waiting to see what tomorrow will bring.
Why we couldn’t get out of the valley this morning. While we were there you could hear trees up the bluff breaking and more slips started coming down so it was a quick u-turn and out of there.
Why we can’t get out now. The same spot this afternoon – under at least two metres of water already.
Some views around the Woolshed.
But at least we have power and the internet. The 21st Century has not abandoned us…..yet.

No Sherman tank turrets floating away this time, Brian? Sad to say, you’re rather an expert at this flooding thing. Keep safe.
No – all my war games stuff tucked away nice and dry this time. Running on a generator at the moment as power is out. Slips have cut us off completely. At least a week. Could be getting a bit low on some food by then but in mean time have a freezer of meat to eat our way through.
Glad you and your tank turrets are safe!
