Flooding continues to affect 20 + towns across Queensland and floodwaters are taking a long time to go down. It may be one or two weeks before everyone can get back inside their houses to start cleaning up. Unfortunately heavy rain is forecast over much of the affected areas in the following days and weeks.

I saw on the news last night a handmade sign in a flooded country town which read ‘If you don’t live here, piss off!’ So very Australian – haha

Haiku to you to πŸ™‚

ain’t no Venice for tourists!

Major General Mick Slater has been seconded from the army to lead the flood rebuilding and recovery program.

Here’s hoping the rain stays away.
