Three photos from the latest January floods of Queensland. This is starting to become a regular thing. Note to self…make no plans for next January and maybe learn some canning/survival techniques from Pinterest.
The first day of school was cancelled yesterday and moved to today. Strange that my daughter was not in the least bit disappointed. We had decided last night that we would get up a little earlier and leave a little earlier. Sounds like a good plan. We leave early. So far so good. We round the first corner…military police directing traffic (we live near an air base). Ok, that was ok, now onto the highway, yay. And now we see why the MP’s were directing the traffic. My husband tells me the line of traffic went for about 5kms. Eeek! Went through town, turned around at flooded roads 5 times, sat in traffic for half an hour…blah blah blah, we get to school an hour later (which is actually only 10 kms away and takes 12 minutes usually)…rinse and repeat for the trip home. In summary we left for school at 7.20am and I got home at 9.55 am.
The one thing that stood out in my mind was…I should always pee before leaving home.
