The rains came down

The sky a translucent grey, the ground wet and slippery. The air moist with humidity. All around, the nation is inundated with rains.

North of my home, floods cause evacuations and damage. We are safe. Soggy, damp and warm, but safe. I look at the newspapers in astonishment at the water levels in NSW, Queensland. I feel for the families and individuals who’ve been evacuated. Where do they go? What do they return to? The clean up alone seems insurmountable.

Stay safe everyone. Wherever you are, whatever you’re facing 🙂

  1. Even some of the evacuation centres have been evacuated as the rivers rise around here. Just a bit of my wording. I would have written “inundated by rain” but that’s just me. BTW it just started to pour down again 😦
