    Default Flooded Frogs

    Now that hopefully the flood waters have peaked around the region (Central Western NSW), are there any fellow Froggers that were affected from the rain and flooding.

    I got some water through my back shed, apart from that got out of it better than some.

    How did the others fare?

    Yah reckon? I lived there when I was a kid and I remember certain parts of town being flooded - strangely enough those bits near the river.

    I opened my door to go to work on Tuesday and had puddles in the footwells on the drivers side. I think the water came in through the sunroof although its never leaked before.

    What a coincidence, they're the first parts of town that get flooded here.

    My boys were playing in the FIL's Hilux on Monday and left the windows down. The FIL went out Monday night to put the windows up in the ute & only put up the drivers side. Next morning 3 inches of rain in the ute



    PS Rambo have you traded the 306 in on a tinny yet? You get a few more miles out of a tinny at the moment.

    everything here was safe but we couldn't go south, east or west as all the roads were blocked

    Eugowra was evacuated and the tows people were put up at the showground in town here

    the water running down the road here was like a river and was up over the gutters

    lightning, wind and torential rain and we got 136mm in one night

    from what i heard Narromine received 9" of rain

    one delivery that had to made to forbes had to go through the forest to get there as the road at tichborne was under 2+ metres of water which rose in under an hour

    we were warned that going through the forest was not advisable as the road was chewed up so forbes was basically out of the question

    getting to orange was also out as it was under water 10km's out of town and the road to condo was out as well

    dubbo was the only safe passage

    sunny day all day today but hot and humid as hell and predictions of more rain to come

    bushmans dam went over the spillway and it was sandbagged to try and save the motel there

    luckily we don't have a river going through town here otherwise we could have been a lot worse off but it still wasn't fun

    if i had to get out of the driveway i just wouldn't have made it due to the amount of water we had running down the street
