We Are Thankful Today

Wow! There have been some terrible weather caused things happen here yesterday and last night.

5 people dead from drowning, why oh why won't people look at the water before they try and drive through?? It is just so sad.....

A cutting from ABC Online:-

Queensland weather: Five people killed after three cars swept away by floodwaters; storm moves into northern NSW

Updated 51 minutes ago
Five people have died after three cars were swept away by floodwaters in south-east Queensland during a torrential downpour.
Severe and dangerous storms lashed the region on Friday, with an east coast low moving slowly into northern New South Wales overnight.

I hope that things go better in NSW, though I heard on the news just now that a young boy has drowned at Ballina in NSW.  The river at Lismore has broken its banks also.
We had storms all night and then this morning we woke to a blue sky and no rain! We are just so lucky. Can't walk in the back garden yet as it is waterlogged, but it will get away quickly if the weather stays fine.
To our friends in Sydney and surrounds, take good care, nothing is worth being swept away - if this comes your way stay inside and stay safe.

Take care

my daughter told me about this .. they have been having rain for WEEKS so cannot imagine what made them think they would be safe .. but then maybe they had what seemed like "good reasons" for their actions .... keep safe .. AT HOME x
