I had another post almost ready to publish but wanted to inform my readers from overseas about the flood disaster that is unfolding in South Queensland. The scenes on our television news this morning are hard to comprehend. I do not live in this state but our region has received lots of rainfall in recent weeks. A flood warning is in place for our local river and it is highly likely that our town will be isolated later today. My property is on a hill and apart from being cut off from town, we are high and dry and unaffected when the valley floods. This photograph was taken further down our road on the flats during the last big flood a few years ago. That is my border collie in the water. The people in the little cottage were evacuated during that event. To give you some perspective of how much worse the floods in Queensland are you may want to watch the news clip that follows. The death toll is eight but expected to rise and reports state that 72 are missing.
Your prayers are needed and appreciated for my country at this time.
