We are no longer on a flash flood warning, but the situation in Brisbane is dire. News is available from the ABC at http://www.abc.net.au/emergency/flood/ Keep in mind the we are over 1000 kms from Brisbane, but the whole east coast of Queensland if effected in varying degrees by wet weather.
I have been able to get to work on my bike, but training is on hold while flooded intersections and broken bitumen are an issue. The "loop" at the University is in terrible shape from a flash flood last night, so there is one of my favorite training circuits gone. I am so glad we have a high house, and a Canadian sense of "plenty in the pantry". Food could get scarce as all transport is cut, but we are always ready for that and will be fine.
I hope that everyone in the Brisbane area is safe. We are glued to the net and the news as events unfold. A case or two of wine in the cellar, analog scrabble and cribbage at the ready. Lots of candles, a solar radio on hand. We live at 7.5 m above sea level. Fingers crossed for continued fine-ish weather.
