Queensland, the northern state of Australia is at the moment experiencing a huge disaster as floodwaters drown city after city, Toowoomba, Rockhampton, Ipswich and Brisbane.
 It is an Australian characteristic to be stoic in the face of tragedy (see photos)
. My sympathy goes out to those who are suffering. Their spirit is indefatigable.

I suppose you might as well rejoice that you finally have waterfront property. I can't imagine being quite so easy if my home were under water.

Personally I don't think I'd be staying around if I lived in that area.

I'm sorry to hear about this, Lex.
I hope you and your wife stay safe.

Thanks for your thoughts Jen, yes we are well away from any risk of flood.

Remember the left always use disaster as a tool. Get ready for a new round of climate legislation.
