These images of country areas of south west Queensland are not exactly down the road but we are getting some of the rain here in Brisbane that has completely swamped places like Roma and Birdsville. They've been inundated with many scrambling to safety, some with little warning.
I'm reminded of growing up on the Clarence River in northern New South Wales where the river would invariably break its banks from time to time. We would get to that point where we would look at each other knowingly and say "flood rain". There's rain and there's flood rain.
For me at the moment there's rain and there's the studio. Its cooler than recent times... sleeping is good with the sound of falling rain and there's no flooding downstairs (we had a little fiasco last year!)...so all is well!
