    Default Flood Crisis

    Hi everyone,

    Lately I have been totally overwhelmed by flooding in many different places.
    My prayer goes to those people and animals affected by this flood crisis.

    Do you know anyone affected by this?
    I love cooking but I love eating even more.

    Our andalusian breeder friend is flooded in. Luckily he should be fine as he and his farm is on a hill. Other than that I don't know anyone affected.

    Prayers to all affected, too.

    My sister is in Gympie, they have evacuated their shop. Where they live they are high so they are fine. My son who lives near me is stuck up there till roads clear to get him to an airport.She says what they have there pales in comparison with the horrors that Toowoomba has faced with the flash flooding and loss of life. She says she is embarrassed that the news still shows Gympie when there is so much worse in other communities. They had warning, others didn't.

    It's (about to get) wet and wild from Marla to Mt Gambier (Eastern SA from North to South)

    They're talking 8cm in an hour - same as what they got in the town of Toowoomba - though the catchment of Toowoomba got more like 15 to 20 cm in an hour - flash floods.

    Does anyone remember the Nimbin floods - late 80s or early nineties - it was impossible to get from Brisbane to Canberra for about a month because the whole area in between - all roads were flooded.

    (must have been the April 1990 one) - and it's all wet there again now.

    The creeks run dry or ten foot high
    and it's either drought or plenty

    We have had a few little floods but we are now totally saturated & it's been pouring on & off since midnight & looks like a big storm coming. I pray my creek bank behind this house holds. I thank god that we finally got some damaged but eatable hay off the paddocks as I think the lucern block may be about to end up underwater for sometime.
    I hope all in floods are keeping safe & watch out for snakes they hate the water & will flock to dry land, yukko............

    My aunt and uncle are in G.a.yndah, though the town is fine, the family farm is underwater in places and my uncle can't get to the cattle without swimming. My other Aunt and Uncle live in Brisbane, but are in Tassie right now. They live up Mt Gravatt, so hopefully their home will be fine to get home to, but they may have trouble getting home. I was born in and lived in Toowoomba for many years, the tv footage is something quite emotionally shocking for me at the minute.

    I've been wanting to move home (north) for a while now, this makes me more determined to make the move back...

    I don't personally know anyone affected, but my thoughts and prayers go out to those who are fighting and surviving in the disaster zone. Absolutely tragic.

    Just watching the 7PM Project right now, so heartbreaking. Its so funny(well, not funny at all, but you know what I mean) that the top half of the country are trying to survive floods, while the bottom half survive fires.

    Now that I think about it, ChoppaChop and Keira&Phoenix live in Queensland, I hope they're all ok.

    Hope we hear from them then..............
    It weird my brother was flying helecopters in alice spring last year & it was surronded in water & where the water had moved on the land was covered in stunning wild flowers.
    It's like mother natures gone mad, we went over 10yrs in serous drought & now we can not get near the paddocks for rain, maddness.
