    I only got a chance to glance at this before I went to bed last night, but WOW :( I hope it gets better for them ASAP. When I was a kid we had a place right on the river, and it flooded a lot and was so terrifying. I couldn't imagine what these people are going through, so very heartbreaking :(

    Hey sorry I missed this topic, I haven't been on here a lot,

    thanks for the thoughts & prayers,

    We are ok here, as we are in a hilly spot & if we get flooded well pity help the rest of the country, I don't think there'd be much out of water :roll:

    the floods in Queensland have settled down now & it isn't raining at the moment so that is a relief!!!! I'm not real sure on the rest of the states but I think it's improving there are well.
    A lot of damage of course, some people have lost almost everything including family.
    the clean up has been & is huge, but a lot of people have got in and given a hand one day in brisbane (a main queensland city) the volunteers were well in the the thousands!

    if you'r interested, check this link & have a look through the photos, http://www.facebook.com/QueenslandPolice

    Keren is ok as well,
    any other questions go ahead & ask, :)

    You are so lucky... to be in a hilly area..... thank goodness for high places... :dance:

    I hope it stops flooding....and the water level goes down quickly...glad it isn't as bad... as it was........ with the water levels.... at least they have a chance to go down.....

    It is sad....for the ones lost.... it breaks my heart... :( It is going to take a very long time.....for alot of families... to get back on their feet.....

    It is great to hear... of all the volunteers.... miracle workers in themselves........ :wink:

    Hey ...thanks for the link.....it was appreciated... :thumb:

    If you see or hear from Keren...tell her to please check in....we love to hear from her as well..... :hi5: :hug:

    How are the snakes and critters there....now that the water is so high....is there an over abundance of them now... in the water....?

    I can imagine... that alot of wild life and farm animals... must of perished as well?

    Thank you so much Shirrelle...at least I know.... that you guys are OK..... :grouphug:
