It sure has been a day to forget..

..the heavy rain started last night and we have had 115mls during the day..usually we might expect about 65mls in a month.  The roads and drains in the city haven't been able to cope..and some homes have been flooded...and sadly DD2's little house has been one of those houses,..DH went to check on it at lunchtime as we heard that a number of roads in the area had flooded and what a sad awful sight it was.....water knee deep as you walked down the path and then up the front steps to the door.. and there it was ..water through the house as well..not a great day at all...

On the news tonight it said that one of the pumpstations had failed in the area..not what you want to hear when you have to deal with a flooded house..
...and now begins the process of dealing with the insurance claim and getting the house liveable again.


  1. oh that is not good..............big job cleaning up and throwing out..........

  2. Did I hear on the news that DCC does not service the drains, pumps or pipes often enough?? I hope the insurance claim goes according to plan, so many times there are problems. I hope for less rain, and the clean-up goes well, nothing I can say will make it happen any better way at all.

  3. Oh no! I hope you get everything cleaned up and dried out soon, and that her insurance play nicely. So glad I live on top of a hill!

  4. So sorry to hear that! I hope the clean up and insurance dealings are quick for you all!
