Yesterday was a crazy kind of day – more terrible stories and images from the flooding that’s currently happening around my home state of Queensland. So much rain fell throughout the day – in fact, the most amount of rain I think I’ve ever seen.
My street became a creek and the water levels rose through the lower floor of our house. The threat of evacuation continued throughout the day, but thankfully we were able to stay safe at home for most of the day.
As the city of Brisbane braces for the flood waters to peak, we’re just waiting, watching and hoping that everyone stays safe.
We woke this morning to bright blue skies and a spookily quiet neighbourhood. Although it didn’t take too long for the dark clouds to begin gathering once more.
Thanks to everyone for the messages of support and concern we’ve been receiving – they are greatly appreciated. Things have been stressful for sure, but we know there are a lot of people facing far worse than us.
Wherever you are in the world dear reader, keep safe and keep well … and perhaps hug those you love just a little bit tighter for good measure.
