Short update tonight. There's not much to report. For the first time in ages I haven't been out and about today. Although the day has still been SES-heavy. I'm not going to lie: I'll be glad when the weather settles down later in Spring.
I woke up to a day that was cloudy and constantly threatening to rain. I started doing some Service paperwork just after breakfast - making arrangements for our members or those of the auxiliary unit to do a recce at a house that's under particular flood risk, checking the Bureau of Meteorology river gauge levels that are of concern, filing our outstanding incident reports and so on. Through the morning I also had a call from the Regional office confirming that the Broken River is expected to reach moderate flood level, so could we go check out a particular house that's at risk nand if necessary arrange suitable response.

We're likely to be busy tomorrow: as well as ominous flood warnings, there's a storm warning for the fringes of our district as well. I have an uncomfortable 'never rains but it pours' feeling.
Not much more to add. Did I mention I was knocked back for the job as a seasonal firefighter? No matter. We just push on.
