We are thanking our lucky stars that neither the new house and back granny flat, or the rental we are in were affected by the floods. Very grateful, we are. (Yoda).
Our thoughts though have turned to the disasters in Bundaberg, Laidley and soon to be Grafton. What an incredible force of nature this flood crisis has been.
The builders managed to get back on site this morning, but the power is out so they couldn't get much done today.
The only damage done has been some of the timber stain leeching onto the new paintwork. I'm not sure how they're going to rectify this. My cousin said to make sure it's not just painted over otherwise it will seep back through later. No biggie really, all things considered. Just another event to put life into perspective.
