If you live in Victoria you will have no doubt experience a massive amount of rain. If you live elsewhere in the world, you might not know about it.
Within 6 hours, the town I live in had received its monthly average rainfall for September and October! That is how much rain we had. I wasn't aware of it until the next morning when the husband went to work and rang to tell me he would be late due to the floods.
What? Floods? Where?
When he finally got home, we went for a drive out to my parents place, as they are close to where Brian said the highway had been closed, and when he spoke to my mum earlier that morning, she mentioned that they couldn't see their bottom paddock under the water.
So we went for a drive. And found this bridge.
No wonder it is a little muddy under foot, requiring my gumboots! My heart goes out to those who are in a much worse state than us, and hope that they are staying dry and that the water levels go down quickly.
