More Water...

When I left last Thursday, it was sunny. When I jumped off the plane on Wednesday, it was sunny and really hot. It's hard to believe any of the rain ever happened. All the water is dried up, all that's left are damaged homes. Here's more pics...

A drowned car.
Soccer Fields. The tin tops that you can see are the tops of the shelter sheds where you sit to watch soccer.
A shipping container that was washed away from somewhere. It's lodged up against a footbridge which is around the gooseponds - under there somewhere is a road with the traffic lights out of order, and a walking track. The scary thing is, the gooseponds is home to lots of turtles, ducks and even the occassional crocodile...
There was a story in the paper of a lady outside her house attempting to salvage some belongings which were floating away and she came across the bubbles of a croc... Just when you think things can't get any worse.

The pictures are amazing. I know we need rainfall but not like this.

A beautiful sunny day here in Sydney today. I even got my washing dry!

Oh crap, crocodiles - scary! Glad to hear that your home and business survived relatively unscathed... amazing photos!
