A few flood photos.

What a horrible time for many Queenslanders!
I really can't watch anymore news at the moment. Not only are Aussies suffering, but now Brazil has suffered a major disaster, 640+ people lost.
Not a nice start to the new year, too much saddness.
Mr Crazy House has been on holidays and therefore I have seen a ridiculous amount of morning news(which I normally don't watch).
Flooding in our area was not bad, we have seen worse. Thankfully the sun has been out for a few days and inspite of the storms things are drying out a bit.

When the going gets tough, the tough go sightseeing!(along with everyone else)
Where Penny and I go walking, soon to be under water.


After


The skatebowl became a pool.


Usually the path looks like this.


Rising waters.


And totally under water 3/4 hour later.
A local main street flooding .
In the past the water has reached halfway up the large white building.

An RSL club.

Carpark going under water.

Bridge flooding near Woolworths.

Someone's BMW.

No 2 son standing under the large white building 3/4 hour before the bridge above flooded.
Yikes !!!

After

Two bridges within 200m of each other. Both flooded.

After

For a few hours no 1 son thought he was going to have to sleep at work as all roads home were flooded. However the waters couldn't stay that high for long.

Hopefully the clean up across Australia (and in Brazil) won't take too long and maybe the tears will lessen as time goes by.
Take care
