Our Flood

Excuse the mess but we were having a flood rolleyes.

I am not going to bombard SnapShots with flood photos but thought I would share these two with you. The filthy water under my veranda ended up one centimetre below my door threshold before it started to recede away so that was a lucky escape. My sons home did have two rooms with water damage that came through the roof with repairs having to be made to wiring and removal of floor covering. This photo was taken looking towards my sons home. There is still a lot of cleaning up to do although the urgent items have been done.

This snapshot is of a creek that run past the farmyard. We have never seen the water so high in this creek although have heard that there was a similar flood in the early forties before the farm was purchased by the Borgas family.

The water has receded a 'lot' in this photo and it was at this point I took my camera and snapped away. I just loved the colours in this shot and wanted to share it with you.

I am a new grandmother as of yesterday morning. Not bad.... A flood, son married and a grand-daughter over a period of eight days.razz
