Disaster Zone!

We have spent the morning evacuating our office space in West End!  Apparently the water will be at least 2 metres higher than it was when this pic was taken and I'm sure there will be a huge clean up when we get back in next week.  This is nothing though compared to all the people who were evacuating their homes with only a suitcase.  Our hearts go out to everyone who is affected by this disaster!  Hayley & Tracey xx
