Long road to recovery
Thank you for all the caring messages left with my last post. It really has been quite a traumatic and surreal experience these past few days. So many have been left homeless in Brisbane and our city now faces a very long road to recovery. We were left without power (some suburbs still without) for a couple days and pretty much trapped in our suburb as every street we turned down was filled with water. Grocery store shelves were emptied with panic buying, it was hard to communicate with our phones draining one by one and nothing could be done until the water began to recede. Our new place luckily was left untouched but friends of ours were not so lucky. They are now staying with us until their home is livable again. Tomorrow we also face a big day of cleaning up a family business that went completely under. Times like this really brings out the good in people with individuals you have never met lending a hand to get your life back together again. Nice to see.
