Queensland floods the day after

Pelican Lake at the end of our street

Thank you to everyone that sent their thoughts and best wishes. Brisbane and Ipswich, north of the Goldcoast, still wait anxiously for todays high tide that is predicted to cause more flooding and the Brisbane and Brenner Rivers are a roaring torrent of debris, but in our corner of the South East the rain has stopped, the lake level is falling and the blue sky is starting to show through the storm clouds.

Now we all watch as the storm rolls south inundating the New South Wales coastal towns.

Here is a link to photos of the flood.

  1. I’ve been offline for a few days, Pauline, and didn’t realize you were having such terrible weather. Glad to hear you are doing well. Hope the waters recede soon.


    • Thank you, yes we are OK. The rivers are on the way down now but lots of problems. The mud, the smell, the mosquitoes, the heat and humidity it will take weeks/months to clean up Some areas in Brisbane will run out of useable water by midday today and they are bringing in bottled water. How ironic is that?


  2. Talk about the calm after the storm – what a beautiful place to live


  3. i’m glad that things are looking better and hope that the skies clear. your garden must be smiling!


  4. ..and then out to sea where it belong 😉
