Just watching the special on tv now about the flooding last year! It's sending shivers all up and down my spine!
I was living out in the Lockyer valley at the time and that storm was probably one of the oddest I've ever been in. 6 or so hours of bucketing rain. Luckily on that Monday by the time I was to leave for work the roads to brissy were already cut. The poor dogs would have been stuck at home until the Friday when people could get back through.
A farmer that I talked to after that who lived on the Lockyer river told us that he has everything wash up on his property from cool rooms to tanks, kids toys everything. He lost all of his crops and before the floods was already doing it tough. So the floods were devastating to his family. So many sad stories
Rip to all the people that lost their lives that day, some of whos bodies have never been found.
