    How’s everyone coping? We’re on the Sunshine Coast – its dark and pouring with thunder and lightning, but we’re getting off very, very lightly by the look of it.

    Stay safe,

    I just heard on the radio that Brisbane is starting to flood. 🙁

    West End low lying areas are being evacuated and boats have lost their moorings in the Brisbane River already – and they’ve still got heavy rain, the Wivenhoe Dam release and high tide at 2pm to contend with. Lots of other Brisbane suburbs are under threat and roads are cut off right around the place.

    Eudlo where I live has been cut off completely since Sunday night – but we’re well prepared to sit it out for a couple of weeks at least if needed.

    It’s looking very surreal watching cars and homes wash away.

    Keep safe everyone there are already too many unaccounted for or worse.
