Once again I’ve been away. For the first few days I was not feeling well and I thought, I’ll get back online in a couple of days. Then came the rain. And it rained. And it rained. And it rained everywhere, not just where I was. Then the water came. One day the town was covered in soggy red sand and everyone was going about their business and the next, within the space of an hour, over half the town was underwater.
That is the main road of the town, less than two hours after the first warning of actual flooding was given. There had been rumblings for days about a potential flood but the first we were told there was actual going to be a flood was when the water tore through the town.
Things have been a bit hectic since then. I am one of the lucky ones as I live in a reasonably high area and I did not get water in my house. I was however on the wrong side of the water from my house at the time of the flood. There are so many people still trying to clean up and still trying to really figure out how much damage was done and everyone is still trying to help out everyone else as much as they can.
Still, some sense of normalcy is returning and I am trying to get back into a rhythm and hopefully that means back into keeping the blog regularly. I know I was supposed to post the novel elements series and I still have the responses people sent me and I will post that series, it just might be a few weeks before I put it together.
I know there is a lot of bad weather around, not just in Australia, and I hope everyone is safe and taking care of themselves.
