My brother turned up with 4 loaves of bread and 8 litres of milk. He has been stranded as the creeks rose so quickly, he had to abandon his ute as he was trying to drive home. He made it to our place - completely soaked.
Reports by neighbours - and many pictures on FB has confirmed that people have gone a bit mad with stockpiling. Our local supermarket had no milk, UHT or fresh, the bread section and most of the tinned section had been cleaned out. There was no bulk water either.
Anyway - a snap of the bread sums up today. I'd like to photograph some of the flooding, but it upsets me too much.. and its too dangerous to get anywhere close in any case.
