Going Home… in a Boat. This is in fact a car on a road not a boat on a river. Though it would be easy for you all to be mistaken by this image and title as the road was like a river.
The image was taken during the 1995-96 floods on Haliford Road, just south of Dalby where I was flooded in for 3 months. That’s right 3 months with no food, no clean drinking water and no relief whatsoever. We had to eat what we could find in the forest and drink rain water caught in plastic buckets.
The reason I’ve posted it on RB is to give you all a bit of an idea of what is happening in Queensland at this very minute as the rain continues to drench our lives. The latest news report Jan 10th 2011 tells us that Dalby is once again going under, for the second time in 2 weeks.
The people in these flooded communities need your help and to that end all profit from the sale of this image will go to the Queensland flood relief appeal. PLEASE help me to help those effected so badly.
