We have once again evacuated ahead of a predicted horrible day tomorrow. The peak danger period is about between 7am and 11am, at this stage.

We are safe and sound in a cabin at Lakes. The town is VERY quiet, mostly those like us staying, and others still hoping to get out tonight. Most shops are shut, supermarket is still open. We have supplies for 3 or 4 days.

The lovely people who own the park are letting locals stay for free if you have evacuated, and have said we can stay free of charge for as long as we need to. Very generous. We have our Jinxy cat with us.

Updates as I am able. We are safe for the moment.

    1. Yes most people, except for the ones looting homes! At Metung people were told to put a red flag on their property to indicate they and their pets were not there. Unfortunately the thieves took advantage of the opportunity.

Stitches by the Sea

Welcome to my blog. I live, knit and craft near the Northumbrian Coast (but not too near - the waves won't be splashing my knitting!).There's a story in every stitch, every grain of sand, every blade of grass. I thought I'd blog about it...
