    We are at Clontarf Beach just north of Brisbane and up till this morning we have had over 300mls which we feel is enough,it’s washed our veggie patch away so we will have to start again when it dries out,ah well that’s all part of life we will get it back up and growing again but we will say this all our tank’s are over flowing for the first time since we put them in,is there any one else down this way with a rain gage and let every one how much they have had.

    We hope every one is staying safe on the road’s if you have to go out,we were to take our dog to the vet this morning but we had water every where we could not leave our place it has droped a bit this afternoon but they say there is more to come. Well all stay safe out there and we hope to dry out soon:tup::tup:

    I’m over it!

    We usually don’t have a waterfall running down our front steps – another night of really (worrying) heavy rain, thunder, lightning and strong wind – oh happy days!

    :noapprove:

    Yep thoroughly over it now, Caboolture here and just over 300mm. Back yard is a swamp with inches of standing water. Dogs are a mess and it soaked the chooks and ducks food. Only one raised bed at this stage and it came through OK, dont know how the tomatoes and pumpkin vine will go though as they are planted out of the bed. It will take days to dry enough to mow and by then the grass will be a foot high and thick as buggery.

    We are lucky in that our yard is mostly sand (that’s why I have to grow veg in boxes and pots) so the water doesn’t hang around but have seen some spectacular ‘lakes’ in my travels today. Much more of this and I reckon the Bruce Highway might go under just south of Ettamogah pub. On the radio they have been appealing for people with stock on adjistment to check on them due to flooding and I saw lots of low lying acreage under water today so please get the word out if you know anyone with horses etc.

    Quite agree, my chook shed is flooded and their yard is a mess. The whole area around there is under water.

    Tomatoes have taken a bashing and I have a pile of seedlings to plant which at the moment is a no go.

    Went to the bottom of the block and it is completely saturated and i am on a good sloping block. The creek is running fast and wide as well.

    And it is still coming down.

    Hope all QLD’ers survived the night, doesn’t sound to good up there.

    Maybe raised garden beds are a good way to go, especially when you get this amount of rain.

    Take care

    We do find that our raised beds do much better when we get heavy rain – not that our place goes under, just give some more leeway for drainage.
