a friend in Taz on facebook posted this link earlier, And I am a big enough man to say it brought a tear to my eye.

 Its quite surreal sitting here in the sun as family and I have had no issues at all , yet not 15 Kms away there is this happening. The massive amount of news coverage that is appearing around the world, concerned family and friends ringing and making contact from Europe is adding to this surreal feeling.

A few pictures,

And boat related

It is low lying suburbs and the city centre that are experiencing the flooding

Thought's go out to those who are affected.

How are you guys going in northern NSW and Victoria.

When we finish cleaning up we'll probably be down there helping you.

Doing my little bit over here in the UK,
Heather my other (and better half) runs the cafe in the Alton Community Center, so I have been showing her how to make Lamingtons and Anzac biscuits, these are going on sale in the cafe and all proceeds are getting stuck in a 3 litre whiskey bottle and once a decent amount of cash is in it, will go to the bank and get paid into the Queensland Govs help fund.

Hope those on here that are effected are safe

Well done LB :-)) O0

It seems that world weather has gone mad. Floods in a large part of eastern Australia, massive floods and mud slides in Brazil, and floods in Sri Lanka; then there's bushfires in south west Western Australia. Crazy %%
