Oh thankyou! I didn't think of pancake mix!
Yeah stopped at bunnings today and grabbed a couple of jerry cans - will stop and top up at every open station on the highway too
For those that said Fmc Didn't have power outage that wasn't true. Did u see the poor families that lost there embryos. And also apparently 17 nurses had to hand pump 'brain fart' to keep people alive. Because generators didn't kick in due to petrol. Also the baby born during the storms there! Ahh so many stories out there. Port Pirie etc with no power still.
Made it home safe & power (limited) kicked in about 8pm last night. Still no phone reception, but have wifi so can communicate via FB to loved ones.
Looks like i made the right choice coming home testerday too... saying major flooding in Port Wakefield area - what a nightmare that will be!! Long weekend and school holiday traffic makes it a long trip anyway - but flooding on top !

Crazy to think people are still without phones and power. My cousin and his wife have just posted messages on FB saying they've had to drive to the next town to let people know they're ok as they have no phones still. Given how connected we all are these days, it's hard to imagine being without methods of communication for so long.
Hope everybody's safe!
Thanks @jennykins, the storms are now over - thank goodness and a lot of horrible things happened (including an IVF centre who unfortunately lost power and therefore some embryos - so sad for everyone involved) and it seems like there's been some farmers who have lost many fruit and veg crops.
But we have a lovely sunny 27 degree day today so hopefully that's all for the heavy rain for now.
