We finally found our way home (the long way) after more than 3 weeks of 'wet holiday', and more devastation than i can ever remember seeing!
I know we are all blogging and scrapping about it, but the magnitude of destruction and heartache is just phenomenal. On our way home from Brisbane to Central Qld, via Rockhampton, the condition of the roads and water marks in the trees indicating the water levels was nothing short of unbelievable.
It is just astounding that 75% of Queensland has been inundated! I can only imagine the desperation and hopelessness that so many have experienced.
There were areas during our trip home where the water level had been twice as deep as our car... a Prado!
And what used to be a flat spanse of paddocks on the approach to Rockhampton, now looks like this....
a lake many kilometers wide!
... and the watermark on the welcome sign (just above 'Rockhampton').
And just because i think we all need to temper the bad with a bit of good and beautiful...
one of my fav pics atm - my girls sharing a moment.
oh... and just to show that i have been scrappin. A little sneak!
Today will be a cleanup and pack away decorations day, then go and pick up the kids school stuff that i ordered before we went away... then back in the car and off to Mackay for DD's ortho visit tomorrow!
Thanks for visiting and i hope today finds you all happy, healthy and safe!
