Talk about one extreme to the other!

Post by Squiggle » June 5th, 2016, 5:14 pm

As most of you may remember, we had some pretty crazy bushfires at the start of the year. Well, the rain started the day before yesterday & hasn't stopped. The local pub is under water, the caravan park is under water & it's slowly creeping up the back paddock. Although we are in no danger of being flooded, we are pretty much stuck where we are as the roads around us are flooded.

This is a pic of our paddock normally. A bit browner than usual but you can see the creek.

& this is the raging river we have now!

Hey Squiggs, I saw a show on TV and the guy traveled to Mole Creek! I said to myself, self, you've heard of Mole Creek before! He was looking for the "extinct" Thylacine. BTW, the local pub looks pretty cool!


If it's tourist season, how come I can't shoot 'em?

Yeah, I used to work at the Tiger Bar & it's said to be the HQ for all things Tassie Tiger. There's been heaps of people come in to Mole Creek looking for them & I truly hope one day they find them, & with all the dense uncharted bush & forest around here it's entirely possible.

BTW, the pub went under about 2-3ft early this morning. :hissy:

That's too bad. It looked like a place I could hang my hat in.
