Jakarta rains......

The big wet has started again..........

It has not stopped raining since yesterday.
Already the roads are chaotic.
School has been let out early.
The pool is overflowing and the river near us will soon break its banks.


I have more than enough food and water and have just got 2 new gas bottles.
If the power goes out we will have no tap water (need power to operate well pump) or air conditioning....

We live on the top of a hill so we will be dry, unlike many other residents of Jakarta.

hopefully the rains will stop soon................

And already I am so sick of it. I have stark white tile floors. Who's idea was it to have white tile in Indonesia where it rains and is muddy for half the year?

ALL I CAN SAY IS THAT YOU ARE SO LUCKY THAT YOU ARE NOT GOING TO AUSTRALIA NOW IF YOU GET FLOODED IN.

We went to Baroon Dam today Maleny for a picnic and we also had rain all day, but that didn't stop Sarah, Jeremy and Katie from having a good time playing on the swing and stuff there. The Dam looks like it is full compared to when we were there about 8 months ago. Everything there is lovely and green but no ocean views today. Still good shopping the strip at Montville, all had fun.

Why exactly did I choose to live 3km from the coast? :)

We spent the weekend in the Kristal Hotel. Not a bad place to evacuate to. Back home now, but many streets are still flooded - if we get one more night of rain we'll be flooded all over again.

Stay dry!
