rain rain go away

Sending out blanket buckets of safety to all those affected by the Queensland (and beyond) floods.

Watching it unfold from the comfort of my own loungeroom has been horrid enough, now that we are ourselves land locked with no way out of our suburb since the roads and bridges are flooded over, the widespread devastation has hit home hard. It's scary stuff.

Water is lapping at our back door, then subsiding as the rain eases. Repeat hourly. Our local supermarket has been wiped clean. Literally. I reckon I could stand outside with a bottle of milk and go home with enough money to pay next month's mortgage payment. Crazy stuff for a state that as been in drought for a decade.

Hoping EVERYONE makes it through the next couple of days with their families at their sides.
