Just popping by to let concerned people know that I'm OK here in Brisbane*. Flood waters will not be reaching my family's homes, and there is lots of time for other Brisbane residents to prepare for the worst of the floods - unlike the poor people caught in flash floods in Toowoomba and the Lockyer Valley yesterday.
Earlier today I told someone that the sound of tropical rain on a tin roof was one of the things I missed most while I was in the UK - I change my mind now! The rain can stop!
*And after seeing the BBC coverage, I can see why I'm getting so many emails from UK folk, the headline implies we're all evacuating and the scary video is from Toowoomba yesterday.
