My heart goes out... those poor people in Queensland.  The news footage is awful.  I suspect that the death toll will rise once the waters recede.  Some of those small townships will never recover.  Families have been ripped apart and destroyed.  Just awful.

My Aunt and Uncle live in Bli Bli (on the Sunshine Coast).  They are away from the troubled areas, but one of their daughters lives near Toowoomba.  She and her hubby were away camping in Gympie when the floods hit, so they can't get home just yet, but think that their house should be ok.  I guess they'll find out when the waters recede enough for them to get home.

Makes you appreciate what you have, huh?
