anyhow, we took a walk down to our local river that is situated a suburb from our home and took some photos of the carnage left from this torrent of water that flowed through. it was so high that it covered the train tracks and major bridge that takes us over the pine river.
a shelter shed littered with trees and posts, imagine how high the water must have been to leave those posts on top of the roof!a tree uprooted and dragged along.
some of the marks on the column holding the bridge showing us the height of the water, further along the track the water went over.
amazing photos, would have been great to have photos of the water at its peak but i was one of the law abiding citizens who stayed off the road @_@
as the clean up continues i pray that they find survivors in the Lockyer valley and that people can get back to some sort of normality as soon as possible. my girls have started in earnest to clear out all of the toys, dvds, books and clothes they think some other girls would love and i will put together items for men and women. the director of Claudia's day care will take a bus load over to another day care that lost everything in the suburb of Belbowrie and is asking for any good quality items that can be spared. my girls love the thought of helping someone else their age to get a smile back on their face.
keep praying for those affected.
