Major Floods

My header photo was taken in December with our local Brisbane river peaking at 6 metres, today it is rising and is currently at 13.6 metres - South East Queensland is in crises. There have been at least 4 deaths overnight and yesterday and many more.

Ivan and I spent yesterday flood proofing our house and digging our ditches deeper. Today it is just a time of waiting and watching and sending our prayers to all those who have lost their homes and lives.

Diggin our a tree root, Ivan hit mud!

Mud, glorious mud!

This is what was causing the problems.

Unbelievable, you're getting the total opposite of what we are, your floods are our snow. This year I'm sure that we've set some records, it's that crazy.

My heart goes out to those who lost their lives, I hope that our homeless here have found shelter or they wouldn't survive this snow and freezing temperatures.

All the best to you and your loved ones Beverley, take care.
