Flooding to close to home now

there are bridges somewhere ahead

this is another road I normally use every day which is under a lot of water! I have lived here for 7 years and it has never gone under before! I love the rain but I really wish it would stop now!

this is the road that I also use to get my son to school which is under a lot of water.

this is the road I normally use to drop my son to school it's under about 12 metres of water which is a lot

under this water is a park that the kids often went to and when we bike ride we also ride through the park!

Wow Queensland Australia has been flooding and now it's geting a little close to home!  these are a couple of photos taken this afternoon 2 streets from my house.  And they say it is only going to get worse! My husband will be working from home for the next couple of days he normally works in the city but we are cut off at the moment so it will be nice to see him for a couple of days. there are so many people that have been devestated by the floods My heart goes out to them all! For all those people who have lost everything including loved ones.

My heart goes out to you and everyone in your area. I've been watching the devistation on TV here in Virginia, USA. Keeping you all in my prayers. Stay safe.

Flood waters freak me out. We had flooding like that back in May. I live about 30 minutes south of Nashville. All our roads going out were flooded and one bridge was completely washed out.

Lisa, stay safe!!
