Had a chance to have a walk today.

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

As lots of my friends know we've had lots and lots of rain falling all over the country and especially Queensland. The devastating floods there are just unbelievable. The rains have been coming for the past couple of weeks and the waters have nowhere to go, just overflow their river banks. Even when the rains stop it will take a week or more before people can get back to their homes, that is, if their homes are still standing where they left them.

Melbourne is 2000 km/ 1500 miles south of the devastated area so we are lucky not to have the floods. For the past couple of days we've had rains but this morning it was dry so I got my walk around the park. It rained again this afternoon but not too much.

We are being told that the recovery costs might top $16 Billion! One thing that we can be sure is that fresh food is going to go up in price. Queensland is where we get fresh fruit and vegs from and fresh beef and lamb too. Petrol and ethanol is also going to be much more expensive.

The worst part is that there are still 70 people not accounted for and definitely 18 deaths already.

    It is just so terrible and devastating in Queensland. We've had TV going non-stop and have rellies up there. Still waiting to hear from my niece and her twin daughters who are near Ipswich. Last I heard from her is that the power was cut off and that was yesterday morning. It's a very worrying time.

I live in Tasmania and we've had non-stop rain for a while with flash flood warnings, etc. along the east coast.

Fingers x'ed and prayers for everyone. One thing's for sure, all Australia will be there to help.

    I've actually been monitoring your weather for the past week (I put it on my Ipod touch) and it's truly unbelievable. I just pray that you guys are safe and that those 50 people are okay as well. As Phebess said, it's a wake up call to show who's really in control.

    I saw this news story and have been praying for those 50 and their families! Good for you for getting your walk. And thank you for making us that are half way around the world aware of what is going on outside of our own back yards.

  Glad you are away from the flooded area. Feel so bad for the people that aren't so lucky.
Great that you could finally get out and walk.

    Thanks for the laugh Carolyn, 'no stability to it in my case'. I only use the ball to sit for hours at the computer and occasionally use it for the exercises. emoticonI hope it's doing me good and will have to get it pumped up soon again. Hope you get to like it! emoticon
