I realise that none of the above items have anything to do with our quiet life - I've been slightly distracted wrassling with invoices and blo*dy Quickbooks and BAS's. ... I promise that I will return to regular posting again soon, now that I have pretty much found all of the cool button jewellery images out there. I actually found some pages lurking on my camera's memory card, so as soon as I delve into that, I'll share.
Until then, check THIS out!
Taken from aircraft sometime yesterday afternoon, this is the Burdekin River at the Macrossan Bridge near Charters Towers. I believe it was about 6 point something metres over the bridge at this stage, only 60cm below its highest recording in 1942. Reports are that its holding more or less at this level - it is possibly that even more water could arrive here with the heavy rain falling in the upper catchment. It doesn't look much - but look closer at the cars in the bottom right hand corner, that should give you an indication of the scale of this.
By the way, Trevor arrived home safe and sound, with the groceries, this morning. Back of car (4wd wagon) lovely and wet not from driving through swollen creeks, but from the heavy rain he'd driven through and a miniscule, unlocatable but persisant leak somewhere around the back door. Yay. I just love the smell of wet carpet!
