In case you're un awares, Brisbane has been hit with some serious rain this past few weeks and only yesterday Toowoomba was devestated by an 8 meter wave of water that exploded from the storm water drains and tore through the main streets (there are still people missing and sadly lives have been lost).
In the next 2 days the flood waters are supposed to hit us in Brisbane and while the Brisbane river is already at incredible highs it is still to rise, near to 4 metres which will put us in a worse situation than the floods in 1974.
So, with the day off with (I thought) 4 days work to follow I was taking it easy. Then I got the phone call from. Nope, sorry we'll be closed for at least the next 2 days (did I mention that Friday is supposed to be the day when the worst will happen?), call us on Friday and see how it's going. That's when the wine came out and since then i've been doing some 'flood craft'. I know it sounds bad but there really is nothing that we can do except sit and wait (and not drive anywhere!) to see if we're affected by the immenent rising water and with the high tides tonight tomorrow may be different. But for now, it's flood craft and wine drinking time!
stay safe xx
