Go Home Weather, You're Drunk

It's been 6 months since my last post (almost to the day) and I'm breaking silence to make a comment on  the weather we've been encountering - not just the last few days as the ex-Tropical Cyclone Oswald tracked down the coast and emptied its bladder on us, but the week or so before that when SA and NSW were baking under blazing skies and record temperatures of +47C.

At the same time up here in QLD we've had months of no rains - literally no rains - during the rainy season. And then it all gets dumped on us in a week. Our yellow lawns are now inundated, and the water tanks are full - yay we can flush the toilets again ;)

On this most  British of  Australia Day public holidays we are off down to see what the level of the Brisbane River is, take some photos of the flooding and grab some brekkie.

UPDATE: Just back from our recce run through Hendra, Ascot and Eagle Farm - plenty of trees down and the police are out re-directing traffic where the roads are blocked, Energex are out restoring power and the Brisbane River is already flooding near Bulimba.  Click the photo below to see half a dozen photos we snapped this morning.
