Travelled across the Brisbane river today by train (thankfully limited services are running) - and boy is she angry and full.
By all accounts, the worst should be over (for certain areas) so now it's just a case of waiting, taking stock, breathe a huge sigh and then let the cleaning begin.
Even those not directly impacted, personally know somebody who was. My place was unaffected, but my aunts house went under. Sadly there are many thousands of others just like her who will share similar fates.

Some areas still do. Just a few years ago, parts of our country were in an extended drought. For example, The dams in Brisbane and outlying cities/towns were bone dry and we were in the midst of a water shortage. Now we have too much.
All this rain has been part blessing, but mostly it's been a curse.
