Rain and more rain

Standard

There has been more rain, flash flooding about 100 kilometres from here and more rain is expected over the next couple of days. We are only about 500 metre from the river and it is a pretty flat 500 metres. So if the river breaks its banks we flood. It all comes down to how much water they need to release from the dam in order to keep it safe. I guess if the worst that happens is that our house floods then I can’t really complain. People have lost their lives today, they are still not sure how many.

I’m trying not to think about it too much. Would Sartre consider that bad faith? Possibly, but at the end of the day all you can really do is take as many precautions as you can and then carry on as normal hoping for the best. So I have been sewing.

  1. Good luck with the flooding and all. The main thing is to stay safe. Don’t hesitate to leave if you need to. Fabric stashes can be replaced. Siblings not so much.

    • No worries there. I am not the heroic sort. We should be alright though, even if it floods, at the levels they are predicting it will probably won’t reach the second floor of the house.
