So, we've been having quite a bit of rain lately. Like a whole lot of rain, torrents of it, tsunamis even. In any case, it's major enough a disaster that it's scored a mention on CNN. The videos on the site should tell you just how terrible the situation is right now.

The suburb I'm in is nowhere near the Brisbane river and isn't in a low-lying area susceptible to flash flooding, so for us the effects of this epic downpour have been minimal....at least for the moment. The study tends to suffer from seepage (a portion of the concrete wall that faces our back yard is crumbling, so water and silt always comes through during heavy rain) so it's a bit wet in there at the moment. But aside from that, we are relatively unscathed, something I'm feeling very grateful for right now.

Please spare a thought for those that are in bad situations at the moment though (and there are a lot of people who have lost their homes, businesses...even loved ones)....the paper was saying this morning that the economic damage to Queensland from these floods will be on par with that of Hurricane Katrina in the US.
