Is there an end in sight?

Having lived in Queensland my entire life, Brisbane girl born and bred, I've never seen such constant widespread rain around our Sunshine State. They are now comparing this to the 1974 floods that stuck Brisbane. I was only nine years old at the time and don't really remember much, except that a relatives house was inundated at St Lucia. My parents did take use down to the Wynnum foreshore to have look at the aftermath of the king tide. There were boats floating in the streets near Wynnum creek, amazing stuff.
The view around my house yesterday

This is getting a bit close for comfort - Water at the back door


Water starting to creep in at the front door - thankfully it stopped raining and the water drained away

Water pooling at the side of the house



The dogs are starting to go a little stir crazy with all the rain. To break the boredom we all donned our raincoats and went for a long walk, much to Tana's disgust. She loves a walk just hates wearing a coat.

My thoughts go out to all those affected by the flooding. Stay safe and lets pray that the rain stops soon.

Has anyone got any hints or tips regarding the spacing problems I'm having. All paragraphs are just merging into one no matter how many lines spaces I put between them. It seems to occur after photos are inserted...help

Cheers Lisa

Yes it certainly feels like there is no end to this rain. Even here on the Gold Coast.

It never seems to stop...just neverending and heartbreaking for all Qlders. I feel so helpless down here.
