These pictures came from the Sydney newspaper, The Daily Telegraph's social page, Sydney Confidential. It was a lovely sight to see after watching the flood coverage from Brisbane.

I am sitting here watching the #qldflood coverage and I can't believe speed of the water STILL flowing down the streets on its way to the Pacific Ocean. Householders are getting lots of help from volunteers to remove damaged furniture, mud and debris from their homes.

I have been on Facebook to check how my nephews living in Brisbane are going ... Adam's street has been closed and the flood is on the other side of the hill, they are hoping the hill protects them.

Later, I was on the phone to my sister and Adam rang to ask his dad to go on ebay and put a bid on for him. :-) (on a bike he wants) as he now has no internet.

Brisbane River currently at 4.26m and rising.
