Tragic, My friend is in Queensland and has sent photos from her house , 26cm of rain in 8 hours.
I have family/cousins over there and the ones the other side of Oz are struggling with bush fires, not a good place to be at the moment.

The stories are getting more tragic as they unfold - today we heard of a young lad (non-swimmer) who told rescuers to save his younger brother first from their swamped car then got swept away with his mum a moment later. That got me so choked up, more so when I thought of the surviving brothers thoughts as he grows up. Our clubs founder, of course, now lives in Oz though I haven't heard whether it has affected his family yet?
