Beside the Seaside

January 11th, 2011 by Selise

I feel a little like an old time girl beside this seaside in this outfit. And if this rain keeps up it might not be too much of a stretch.

All joking aside though it’s starting to get scary. The Brisbane River has burst it’s banks for what’s set to be the worst flood since 1974. Parts of the City are being evacuated as are suburbs all along the river. There was an inland tsunami in Toowoomba last night that claimed 8 lives. People were stranded on the roofs of their cars and houses over night and more than 70 people are still missing.

It’s weird because, as Hen said, these are places you’ve been. Streets you’ve walked. It’s not some far off place. It’s homes. It’s friends and family’s home towns.

My thoughts and wishes are with everyone at this time. Stay safe and dry guys.
