I'm still safe - still at home. Got up early this morning and checked online - work's official decree was that only essential travel should be undertaken and since Library's don't fall into the category I didn't try to get into the CBD to work.
Good thing too... since the public transport system is going to be shutting down from 1pm AND much of the power in the CBD has been shut off. B's workplace have predicted that their building lobby will be about 1.8metres under water when the peak flow hits this afternoon.
It's a frustrating feeling - watching a force of nature head your way and knowing that there is nothing you can do to avert it. I just hope that my friends who are in the flood path are now safe.
