I'm glad to hear from you, Rodney. I've been a little worried for you, and all our friends down under.
After 3 hurricanes in a row hit here in 2004 I can really empathize with you and your situation. My heart and prayers go out to all the people that, I know are suffering from the effects of this disaster.

Life's a breeze on a Goldwing...

Thank You Everyone, the waters have gone down, our house and I are ok, but 14,972 homes and businesses were completely swamped and 18,025 partially flooded here in Brisbane, many more around the state.

Thankfully up to 12,000 rubber-gloved, mop-wielding volunteers launched the clean up campaign here yesterday.

Glad that everything is turning good again, I'm amazed at the solidarity you have in your country.

A lot off countries (mine included) could learn from this.

i am glad you managed to let us know you are ok
it is a worrying situation still

it is good to see all the volunteers from all over queuing up to lend a hand
and all the fundraising going on
good luck getting things back as normal as possible , take care

i cant recall where i read it, but they said the size of the flood was equivalent to the area of France and Germany added together
thats mind boggling

I'm very sorry to see that photo Rodney. Glad your home is OK, but the scale of destruction is beyond my imagination. Your neighbors have a lot of work to do, but I have no doubt your community will bounce back better than ever.

wow. keeping you and everyone in my prayers as well.
ps. it is not a bad photo in all ways. the point of a photo (to me, correct me if i am wrong) is to communicate some idea with others in a visual way. and this photo does show us what is happening in a part of the world where we (most of us on this forum) are not, keeping us aware of people who are affected by things like this.
