It doesn't rain it pours

Remember just last week I was complaining about the heat?

Ex Tropical Cyclone Oswald has been wreaking havoc here the past few days.

We are lucky and have had no damage from the winds.
The lake has broken it's banks but again we are lucky and under no flood threat.
It has come up once before, higher than this, but that was years ago and the girls don't remember it.
This time though the water is backing up into the lake from the river and that is a little unnerving.

Unfortunately the flood is much, much worse, further north, and unbelievably people who lost everything in the floods two years ago are under threat again.  

The system is heading further south and down into NSW, hopefully they will get some good soaking rain in the bushfire areas.

We always watch you weather. It is hard to believe those areas like Bunderburg are under water again. Looks like fun for the girls.
