Summer in Queensland can be a little unpredictable. One day it's stiflingly hot, the next coldish & rainy. Then there are the storms, we do summer storms well up here! (or badly depending on your point of view)
The Australia Day long weekend in Toowoomba was a bit of a fizzer weatherwise, pouring rain, fog, howling wind and flooded creeks.
Thank God we didn't have a repeat of January 2011 here on the range, but it's still a pain in the ass.
We had to venture out yesterday for supplies, so being a good little blogger, I took my camera and snapped away.

|A bit scary to come around a blind corner and see this!|
|I shall call this Whirlpool on Burstow...sounds like a restaurant|
|West Creek, looking towards Toowoomba City. Still showing signs of unrepaired damage from Jan 2011.|
We have a leaky roof, and a lounge full of stinking, wet carpets. I liken it to what I imagine the smell of a thousand tomcat's piss would smell like.
Now thoughts turn to our fellow Queenslanders who are not as lucky as we have been. Be safe, stay strong, we are praying for you.
