To say it's been raining would be an under statement. After years of drought we now have widespread flooding. The fitzroy river is expected to peak at 9.4 metres, with at least 150 homes having water above the floorboards. In surrounding areas entire towns have been evacuated and are under water. This image is of the Rockhampton pony club grounds, with the Fitzroy River in the background.
I went out taking pics hoping to demonstrate the force/power behind the moving water, but was unable to achieve this.
On my arrival home, I slipped on the wet top step while unlocking the front door and fell down 10 steps onto the concrete path, fractured my collarbone and lacerated the left elbow. Very painful, thank goodness for mobile phones manage to sit up and phone for an ambulance, then sat in the rain while I waited. The emergency services do a fantastic job and I was very grateful for their expert care.
The camera survived the fall.
