I cannot imagine the world without the sun shining.
Today it came out in full force and we rejoiced.
For days it has rained and rained...
Occasionally there was some reprieve, and the sun would peek through..
But then the rain came pouring down once more.
On the side of town where we live, we are safe from the floods.
SO it was a shock to hear the other side of town was flooding again..
On Saturday I went to the shops and purchased milk, bread and eggs..
Little did I realise that some people would soon be panicking for these items.
Yes, our main highway in and out of town was underwater.
The two bridges leading to the other side of town, our church and my son's were flooded.
Water was some 16 meters (53ft) above the water line.
Here are some pictures.
And the road tore up in the next town..
Flash flooding caught many unaware.
Thankfully no one drove onto this is the dark.
NOW, the sun is shining again, and its time to clean up the mess.

An author since 2012 and retired Specialist Registered Nurse. I reside in sub-tropical Queensland, Australia, with my American husband Raymond and our two little dogs. Late in 2008 I began to explore and enjoy the realm of creative writing. This is something which has always been an interest yet until now,I haven't found time to indulge. God is the cornerstone of my home and heart. He is my life and my breath, for without Him I am nothing. My desire is to edify His existance in my daily walk through life. To inspire and encourage the broken hearted. And to assist in the knowledge that EVERYTHING has a reason and a purpose under the Heavens. We are reminded through our faith in Jesus that He will, "Turn our Mourning into Dancing and our Sorrow into Joy." Psalms 30:11.
