Poised ,,the rain has begun


 While it darkens here...a distant ( thus far) rumble of thunder & some showers come in suddenly & heavy and move on...
I felt like averting the unknown of what this severe storm warning brings to our state & others today and over the weekend... 

So colour & parcel wrapping and Christmas decorating ....will occupy a wet day I hope.

I decided not to go to the city & surrounds this weekend ...
Have driven through flood waters once in a small car as the water was running over the hwy...
&
in Western Qld I came in from Roma to Brisbane on a bus after Christmas ..
There was a bus travelling empty as it had been previously stranded in Longreach.
So all of our luggage was put  into this empty bus & the bus all us passengers were in had the luggage flaps opened so the water could pass thru...
&
over the flooded bridge we went somewhere near Dalby I think..
It was one of the spookiest rides I have had..
****
So my decisions are based on prior experience ........
Just hope now it will be dry inside here LOL

****
If there is no lightening today I will paint at the window....
But if not able to do that I shall tidy up !
