This is a photo of my parents back yard looking up towards their house. The house is on the other side of the fence. We peaked at a little over 19.50meters. Thankfully my brother and sister in law were able to travel the back roads to our parents house and help them pack the house up. The water did not reach the house, but if it had gone up another meter it would have.. They will stay at my brothers house for a few days and probably only take the bare necessities back to the house as we are told our long range forecast is for more rain in coming weeks/months :(:(:(
Although they probably don't read my blog 5 of my parents neighbours came to help them move out.. To them i am very very thankful. It is SO nice that their are still people out there willing to help.
Now the rain has moved below us and just to the west of us. We are all thinking of the people in the Toowoomba area and Brisbane area. I hope the rain stops soon so the flooding down there will not be so bad..
Mother Nature can be so cruel, Flooding rains this side, Fire's on the other side of the country (Although i think that may have been reported as deliberately lit) But dry weather over there does not help.
Thinking of everyone Please stay safe xo
