I know that i moan alot about living on the East coast but we're usually pretty lucky with the Weather, It doesn't snow all that much and i don't live to near a River that is prone to flooding cos it's tidal, It must be awefull to always looking at river levels all the time :(

When I lived in a tornado zone it always seemed worst just at the end Del. Hang on in there and try to get some rest
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Thankfully, my area seems to have survived, more or less. Lots of rain, lots of wind, and due to the humidity, my garage door clicker doesn't work any more. Still, it could be worse. A lot worse.

In fact, it's just as well I went up to Brisbane Saturday rather than later, given what's happening. I was PO'ed about a signal failure (for the train tracks) between Beenleigh and Bethania, but that seems like a minor thing somehow in retrospect. :|

Oh, and Happy Australia Day public holiday, Del and Sister Jennifer. Any plans to head to the beach?

Actually, knowing my father, he'd be there. :roll:

I worked Aust Day, Q. I'm ashamed to say I kinda forgot most of the day cause I worked extra hours and it was really busy all shift. So, no didn't have much fun. The weather put a damper on most celebrations I think. Happy belated Australia Day to my fellow Aussies though. Most thrilling to share this amazing country with you.

No plans for today either. The sun is shining but tomorrow is the start of the school year & I'm spending the day making muffins & bikkits for the lunchbox. Just call me Nigella Jamie Blumenthal.

The sun is shining where you are?! :shock:

Here, we're still getting wind and horizontal rain! :?

All the snow has now officially gone here in Hampshire. Took 2 days of rain to wash it away though :roll:

Glad to hear you survived Q. The Coast copped it hard too.

First day of school here too Jenn. So excited. High school.

HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY !!!!!!!

It's been so hectic we didn't get to celebrate. Everything was cancelled anyway.

Internet here so so bad. Drops out every few minutes. Too many people on with the weather. Great when everything we NEED is on the net. Had to ring the local council in the end. The water engineers just rang back. We have an alert for the creek behind me and it will peak at 9am tomorrow... 10 hours from now. They aren't sure what will happen. Should be "on your property" but not sure how far. Much calmer than during the big floods. But this is a different event. We shall see.... they said the surge should come near dawn but it's rising pretty fast now.

More concerned with getting H off to school. The creek runs through her school grounds.

More floods for Rocky... hope your family and friends are okay Jenn.

Poor Bundaberg. Some amazing rescues there today.

I hope you don't end up living in a houseboat there, Del, and the creek doesn't rise too much. Keep safe! :D

We had alternating snow, sleet, rain and freezing rain overnight. Which means the girls got a snow day today, no school. Well, really an ice day.

Thats where Jenn just holidayed!

Want to see an idiot in the foam?



This brought me to tears... the toddler wouldnt fit in a harness so ingenuity came to the rescue (literally!). The poor little darling was not happy about being zipped into the bag but at least he couldnt fall out... thank goodness he fitted. And the flight crew are so lovely to him. Amazing that they were flying in those winds too.

Just keep swimming... just keep swimming.. just keep swimming....
