Where's the Ark?

In the past few days we have had some phenomenal weather. We have had a years worth of rainfall in about 24 hours just over 8 inches to be honest. This was all due to a tropical low that dumped a good lot of rain. BUT not only did we have heaps of rain we are also on flood watch, the flood has come and burst the banks of the Gascoyne River and it has not reached the town of Carnarvon yet due to a levy bank placed just on the main road outside of the local shopping center, also where our business happens to be.The river has not peaked yet and should do some time this evening and hopefully it does not peak to high as we could be in a wee bit of trouble. As we are unable to leave town due to all roads being blocked by flood waters. Unfortunately though many of my friends live on the other side of the make shift levy and many will have lost most of their possessions and their houses will be water damaged. So here are some photos for you for you to look at.

As long as we don't get anymore rain  we will be ok< but they are predicting more so we will just have to wait and see. So until next time Ciao.
