BRISBANE FLOODS – a (relatively) good news story

While I’ve been writing about the Sydney Festival and pleasant theatre events, it will not have escaped the notice of anyone with the slightest interest in Australia that recent floods in Queensland and now Victoria have been taking a terrible toll.

It’s nothing compared to the recent flood disasters in Pakistan and Brazil of course, but quite bad enough. More than twenty people have drowned and thousands have had their homes and businesses ruined.

The house of my fellow blogger and regular correspondent Debra Kolkka was one of those which went under the muddy water. She’s written about it and posted photos, first of the damage, then of the clean-up.

It is an inspiring story of a community, neighbourhood and friends working together and I warmly recommend it to you.
