That rain is moving across the border and giving us here in the Northern Rivers a drubbing as well. It's been pretty wet and wild since the early hours of the morning, and the river is rising quickly.
|Mt Warning is usually visible to the left of the picture....hiding today.|
I took these photos from my bedroom window. The water's moving very quickly, and dragging a lot of debris along with it. I've seen some interesting things float past this morning..... a bright pink tub, a red bucket, and what looked like a piece of pontoon from further upstream......all moving far too quickly to get a photo of.
|Drains are finding it impossible to handle the run-off. If we get the expected 300-400mls of rain forecast, the road here will be underwater by mid-afternoon.|
|In the opposite direction, a neighbour's front yard.....already deep under water. I hope they got their car out!|
|Looking north, Hospital Hill hidden by rain|
So for now I'll wait and see, and try to focus on something other than the weather.....sewing or cooking maybe. It's hard though, I just want to stay glued to the weather updates.
I'm thinking of everyone who's being pummelled by this freaky storm now, those still trying to clean up in north Queensland, and trying to manage without power, their food stocks running low and in some places, severe water restrictions, as well as those further south who are yet to feel it. Stay safe and dry everyone.
.....till next time
