Just a super quick post. My family and I are fine from the recent flash flooding in Toowoomba. My husband was lucky. They were working beside the creek , fixing a pump at the local pool only metres from the water, where the blue car was crushed under the bridge. He left shortly before it happened when the water began to rise – he knew they wouldn’t get back across the creek if the rain continued. Thank the goodness he came home safely.
It is rather eerie to see the destruction in the streets, the creek through town has taken so much. The roads have been undermined and gaping with huge holes, walls and building are damaged or gone… But oh my, so close to home Murphy’s Creek – only 20 minutes away – Is all but gone. Chris from Gully Grove and previously Bushland Project lives in that area. My thoughts fly to her, her husband Dave and their beautiful daughter. I hope they are safe. At the other end is Mandy from the The Old Dairy, she lives down the range from Toowoomba. She is currently stranded, but ok.
Apart from donating money, I can’t help but feel helpless….
