The most recent Flood photos

These first two pictures are of the actual road crossing. There is an amorall rail underneath all that water somewhere.

This is then looking at the crossing from the other side. We have been fortunate to have 3 days of sunshine since the rain stopped. It just means all the silt is setting like concrete. The roadway into the soccer fields is no longer existent. The rail on the ends of the bridges are in the creek and so are the edges of the road . Hence the orange tape!

This last photo shows the pump house where the water supply to our area comes from. This is about ten miles from us. They have hooked a portable generator to it but the actual pipes to carry the water are no longer there.
The power was connected today and since we use tank water in our house, we consider our lives back to normal.
Tomorrow we will again visit the evacuation centre where those who have lost homes and loved ones are being housed and cook them wood fired pizza.
