Don’t get me wrong I LOVE rain but for where we live it becomes a stressful time when it rains heaps. At the moment we are busy putting items we have that we don’t want to lose up high and other stuff taken from our sheds to the house as the water starts creeping up…. It looks like we are going to be flooded again :( . With 3 little kids my husband is a stress head he wants to make sure that his house is okay and that his wife and kids are safe which I can understand, but all I want to do is help, help him clear out the shed and make sure everything that we want to keep is up high in the house.

We are insured but its the stress and thoughts that go through our heads is it going to happen again? We are in a house that the flood zone is one in 100 years and we got flooded in the December 2010 flood when we had a 22 month old and then we had a scare and got evacuated flood warnings in February 2012 which was scary because we had a 3 year old and 8 day old twins.

So at the moment we are just waiting… Waiting to get the evacuation orders again… Will we get flooded… Will we be safe… Who knows… We just have to wait and see…

  • How did you go? Were you flooded? Did you gave to be evacuated? We’ve been evacuated for a bushfire, scarey stuff!


  • How long have we been keeping flood records for? Not long enough to say one every 100 years I think.


  • I know the fear of being flooded we had 2 record breaking floods within 2 years


  • Thinking of you during this winter season.


  • what a stressful time for u


  • gosh it must be stressful..


  • At 1.30am this morning the water came up to our back fence but by 7am this morning we couldn’t see the water… Yayayay it has gone!!! For now that is and hopefully we’ll not get much rain today and hopefully the rivers will be able to clear and not back up again.
    Fingers Crossed!
