More Rain!!!

Updated about 2 hours after original post after discovering that the office and the master bedroom (in which we are not sleeping while the ensuite reno is in progress) are again flooded with yet more water running down the walls & even bigger puddles to sponge away.

Southeast Queensland has again been hit by more storms, with flooding reported across Brisbane, the Lockyer Valley and the Gold Coast and its hinterland. We live more or less right under the middle red dot!

More than 250 millimetres of rain (about 10 inches) have fallen since 10pm (AEST) yesterday, with police forced to evacuate people in some areas as water levels reached their homes' floorboards.

Unfortunately, we copped the rain-damage again, the roof is temporarily sealed and all is well. There's no extra water in the house. The roof is still leaking somewhere. We have puddles, puddles everywhere, but at least the laptop & the modem both work..

I've vacuumed up the worst of the water, but still the carpets and roof batts are being removed tomorrow to minimise the stench and ceiling rot. The MOTH pulled up the carpet in the robe because it was flooding everywhere else as it's so wet.

I hope all's well in your world.

Happiness & laughter to one and all,
