You will be able to get those milk sandies in Agnes. The shop there posted a while back they would have fresh bread delivered soon. When questioned how they said with the help of a couple of police stations.

So now we have police driving through flood waters to deliver bread to people who certainly shouldn't need an urgent delivery.

I don't mean to sound harsh but they predicted a dryer than normal summer and then a cyclone came along and made up for the lack of rainfall.

So are they correct ? Or not? I don't know whether they take 2 weeks of rain as an outlier or not.

Yes Vinnie they were correct. The summer was atrociously dry.

Interestingly now we here have already exceeded our entire rainfall we got all last year.

I think Yeppoon had a similar downpour last year but it was in July I think.

Vinnie, if it hadn't rained when it did I would have been so far up poop creek I wouldn't have needed a barbed wire canoe even. I could have walked it.

I have been lucky to get a bit of a scud here or there, just enough to prevent me having to buy water by switching around my 3 big tanks, turning the water off on the son when he took too long in the shower.

It was the driest period we have had in the 23 years. Only time I haven't had enough water to keep my plants alive if not thriving.

I don't think we can blame the Bom for not being able to predict this rain at the beginning of the season.

I think I just heard on the radio they are going to let water out of the Callide dam and they are door knocking people that live in the town of Jambin.

Finally the humidity drops. Finally... feels cooler.

Our lawn actually was going a bit yellow yesterday almost too much water on it and lack of sun. Should be better today.

Guess what. We are flooded in. smile What a surprise. We wont' be going anywhere for a week or so.

One bridge on the way to town is reported as damaged. The one they had closed a few weeks back to do repairs to. There is a way around it if it isn't washed away. Hope the other 2 bridges don't get damage.

No reports of people having houses flooded.

It is all bright and sunny here today so the dogs will be happy as I will spend a fair bit of time out in the paddocks pulling weeds and tidying up bits of dropped trees.

So glad we missed the bulk of it under 200mm in the catchment area for us.First NBN out around 2pm then the power til about 11.30 wel done to crews for getting it back.This could have been so different result for SEQ and NNSW if it had gone further inland. You got supplies and hubby around bundybear?

I am so glad we don't have NBN to go out on us.

Thanks for thinking of me justme. I have enough supplies to last a month if need be. Meals might be a bit boring by then though. Hubby left work early this week and took the long way home. I also have my son home but that could be a blessing in an emergency but not so useful on the clean up.

Just got back from checking on the old couple down the road and giving them a hand with a couple of things. Now to head into the paddock soon.

We seem to escaped pretty lightly here. Been out and about and the water is certainly no where near where it gets to when it really decides to flood in this area

Been hearing some really disastrous stories coming from the Clarke Creek and further south area. Horses drowned, dogs drowned, cattle drowned.

It makes the way the government carried on about Brisbane, closing schools from agnes water south and sending people home like they are a mob of precious snowflakes in Brisbane. Excluding the area further south that really did get humungous amounts of rain like Beaudesert and Northern NSW.
