The house in which I live is not in a suburb with flooding warnings.
I have still put all my electronics into a bag, with my certificates and passport etc. Most of my other stuff is up in the top shelf (you know the one, the obnoxiously high one in the cupboard that you can never reach.)
I have things on my bed. On my desk. We are contemplating getting out the sandbags.
So, I hear you ask, "If you're not on the flood warning list, why are you getting prepared?"
Because my mother bought a townhouse less than 100m from the creek. At the bottom of an almost perpendicular hill. At ground level.
Being prepared is the motto of the day.
I hope everyone in any part of the flooding and fires in Australia are safe.
