Wild Queensland Weather!

I've been absent for a few days - had no power from Sunday afternoon until Monday afternoon, and the storms were incredible!

The wind howled like the proverbial banshee and the rain came in torrents. Nearly all weekend it lasted.

Luckily the garden has survived, I am very proud of our plants, even though a few are bending a little still, hopefully they will straighten up now.

I hear that we may be in for more rain tonight also! Really it's that last thing we need!

We live in the Logan area, just a block or two back from the Logan River, and in the nine years we have lived here, we have never seen the river rise so much, it has cut roads off and there have been a number of evacuations around.
A few pics:

A view of the dog park, where we take Tommy and Priscilla each afternoon

The young couple in the previous picture had their dogs in the park

Their dogs were having an absolute ball in the water!

 Here they are again, swimming and jumping around

We drove around to the park this morning, to find that the water had crept up to the small tree in the foreground above! Water, water everywhere but not a drop to drink!
