The Flood

Croydon St towards Regatta Hotel

I don't know what to say about the Queensland floods. Only that they are BAD. I guess you would have seen everything on the news, like the tsunami down the main street of Toowoomba, houses being swept away with people in them, Brisbane under water and so on. Where we live did not flood, and most people we know are fine, but many people have lost everything and now floods continue in New South Wales and Victoria. BUT, people are rallying together for the cleanup; in fact, there were so many people who turned up to help, that they were turned away! These sort of times are when we see the best in humanity.

You can watch someone's collection of photos on Youtube here and you can donate to the Premier's Flood Appeal here.

  1. Hey babe,
    So glad to hear that you are all ok. So horrid to be sitting here watching it all unfold. Wish there was more we could do. Love to you all.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave your comments. I love to read them. xx
