AUSTRALIAN FLOOD DISASTER

Just want to let all my RB friends know that I had to evacuate my house today.

I live on the Brisbane River,

In all likelyhood it will be submerged by this time tomorrow, if not – then the day after. I can not get back to my house to check – the suburb is now cut-off.

I got out just in time with my laptops, photo hard drives, some clothes and the cats.

Everything else will most likely be destroyed.

And to make matters even harder for me, tomorrow I have to go to work and save everyone else in the same predicament. [I work for Emergency Services]

I am now staying with my Dad, who lives in a very non-floodable area. The cats and I are all safe and we have plenty of food, water, and most importantly red wine.

Allthough my collection of 2004 D’arenberg Grenache will probably be lost to the flood water.

Damn I had been saving that for when it turned 10 years old! So close… so close.

If I am a little terse with any of you over the next few days/weeks, please forgive me… I am very very stressed right now.

Thanx RedBubble for being here.

Cheers,
-Byron
and two wet moggies
