Today is a very grim day for Brisbane, the torrential rain over the past few days has worked its way into our river system and all rivers are flooding.
The Brisbane river which snakes through the city is set to rise to record levels causing major inundation of homes and business throughout the city the peak flow will come on Thurs arvo.
Yesterday afternoon the call went out to 'evacuate' the CBD and I left work early to get home. Major problems as flooded rivers closed roads and the rail network shut down and I had to complete my journey via a very circuitous route to pick up my car in Petrie. The flooding that I witnessed from the train yesterday was unbelievable, where there were once green fields and parks was inland sea!
Where we live is fine, we are not close to any river systems/flood plains. Thousands are not so fortunate and there will be major damage in Brisbane and Ipswich. Travel to the CBD is not advised so I'm off work today and tomorrow.
After last weeks 2hour trail run I got a niggle in the left hip region, I have been taking it relatively easy since. Though it didn't seem to affect me during the track session, it has been giving me some cause for concern. I will monitor the situation.
