Threads merged. There is a 'sticky' thread at the top of Aus Forum where Poll is putting the official warnings etc so if we can keep the general chat and info here it would be helpful.

Good idea Pen. Just been watching the news and its looking grim for Brisbane later this week.... and that doesn't include the potential impact from the rain that's still coming down.

Yeah, got Sky on. She does the dead pan delivery really well and that dead straight hair and black outfit, definitely had a touch of the Morticia Addams about it.

Yeh, but she's still more charismatic than Rudd.

Just a note to wish everyone impacted by the flood disaster a speedy recovery. I was touring around this time last year (www.ivebeeneverywhere.com.au) and find it hard to imagine what a difference a year makes.

Best of luck.
