Ozzie Ozzie Ozzie!!!

It's been a long time in between drinks but I thought I'd better check in with you and let you know how things are going from my point of view in Brisbane at the moment.

 As you may or may not know, we're bracing for another flood thanks to Ex Tropical Cyclone Oswald. The peak is expected tomorrow but we've already seen plenty of chaos due to roads blocked with trees down, debris all over the road and power lines scattered everywhere. This shot was taken outside where I work up in Mount Coot-tha. Luckily for us the tree fell towards the road, otherwise it would have been curtains for the security guard!

We think the peak down by the river will be significantly less than in 2011. For me, personally, that means water in the carpark but not in the flat - whew!  But watch this space - I'll keep you updated.

Oh yes - happy Australia Day holiday!

All the best Cara..been thinking of you and wondering..hope you don't have to go through all that again!

I am stranded up the coast with my daughter. No local flooding here thank goodness, plenty of rain and wind though. According to my neighbors, no power at home. If the houses get flooded down the end of my street again, I guess there will be no power for a while. I have no idea when the trains will be running to get me home again! ;-) Guess there's no rush, but I'm pretty sure downstairs will have water in again!!

Hi Annie - thanks for commenting and lovely to hear from you! Keep safe and dry where you are - it's not the weather to be traveling.

Hope that you and your family keep safe and dry Cara.

cara said...

Thanks Rae. So far so good.

Cara, I've read about the cyclone and storms too and just saw an article about flooding there. I hope you don't have to live through what you did before. Fingers crossed that things get better quickly! Be careful.

Really good to hear from you. Have been thinking of you the past few days. At least it looks like its not going to be as bad as last time.

LOVE the title"She alright" - this is becoming part of the venacular.

AND so pleased ye ol' Bris River stayed where she should have.

katastrofa to co się stało!
U nas na szczęście takich ulew nie ma.
Pozdrawiam bardzo serdecznie.
