PAD 10.01.11 Trenches

After yesterdays torrential downpour continued overnight. DH has been out digging trenches to get the water to flow away from the house. It may look yucky, but know we are one of the lucky ones. Although I couldn’t get to work today (major roads closed due to flooding) our little backyard flood & consequent mud pit is nothing compared to friends in and around Qld faring much worse off than us. Family of friends evacuated after their town flooded for the 4th time in a month. Whole towns underwater. A town on the top of a range had a 2M wall of water rip through it earlier this afternoon – no warning, nowhere to go, cars stacked upon cars, people killed and missing. It’s absolutely devastating. 

I think it’s suffice to say that QLD has had enough of the rain :(

Oh I know! I have totally stopped complaining after seeing that footage from Toowoomba. I lived in Toowoomba for a year, about 100 metres from the centre of town that water ripped through. Like you said, just devastating.
