And, indeed, with our members in the rest of Queensland.

It's been a real eye opener, and it isn't over yet!
Here is the latest, http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2011/01/13/3111726.htm

Northern NSW is also flooding and the latest I heard was suburbs around Grafton going under.

As if the bushfires wern't bad enough!

As I went out shopping tonight I slipped a Slim Dusty CD into the car radio, and Henry Lawson's "Ballad of the Drover" struck me with its elegance and economy of words:

A small fragment of Slim Dusty's musical version can be found at Amazon in France:

Perhaps it's just me, but I have a strange sense of deja vu.

Everything fine and normal one day then bam! life is changed forever and the outlook of years before things are normal again.

It will take more than a few pills to fix Queensland, and as I said before it isn't over yet.

Liz's family are farmers from Eyre Peninsula, and it has really always been that way in rural Australia. Henry Lawson's poems chronicled both the floods and drought, and it really hasn't changed in a century...

Nah, 100 years ago Australias population was 4,525,000.
Today it is 22,531,000 and that's the difference.

1974's floods did less damage despite being 3 ft higher; less homes, less people and less infrastructure.

I think this time some people will reassess as some residents of New orleans did and simply go elsewhere.

Today was first day of major clean-up here in Brisbane. The volunteers that turned up to assist were unbelievable. The lord mayor had organised 4 meeting areas for volunteers to be bussed out to certain areas. They ended up with more volunteers than they could handle.
People turned up with mops/brooms/buckets/mozzie spray/rubber boots/hats etc - what a sight! Other people just turned up handing out sandwiches and other foods - amazing considering it is only a few days since this all happened.
One man said there were about a thousand people working in his area with no leader and no arguments, not a single bad word spoken by anyone - more amazement. One man interviewed had flown up from Melbourne!!
It is so interesting how tragedies can bring out the best of our humanity. The community spirit is all happening here in Queensland!!

Moxie,
It is great to hear from you again. I still have vivid memories of our meetings in Brisbane back in 2006.

Do you have any info on how our other members are getting on?

Not sure of other members that could be affected.

Yesterday has been named "Salvation Saturday" and the volunteers that turned up "The Mud Army". Over 12,500 people registered as volunteers and there would have been just as many people just "turn up". In one day, homes in many streets had everything taken out, loaded onto street and then trucks came and removed it all. So what was achieved from the morning to the afternoon really was miraculous. The old saying "many hands make light work" really is so true.
For the next few weekends, "Sister Suburbs" is being organised so that unaffected suburbs further away can participate.
All in all, the best of human nature is flourishing here.
