Sad to see all the shots on the news, hope all you "Cane Toads" are safe and keep those Troll's out of the water.

Good luck to all Members living in Queensland. Most of my fathers side of the family dont live far from Ipswich and was only up there i late part of November. Planning to go again mid Feb. Just by talking to local Victorians, everybody is talkingabout it and wishing you all the best of luck.

Agreed, be careful. I've spent the day organising staff at our west end warehouse to move the stock to the second level, they were advised to evacuate at around midday with the waters breaking the bank in the park across the street and coming up the road.

I wish all the Queenslanders the best of luck getting back to your familys and hoping the water stays away from your homes .
Its is stresful not knowing what happening with your family.

...a little bit trapped in town (Gympie - no guesses there) ATM, no fuel, bread, milk or eggs to be had anywhere. Luckily I live on high ground! Lots of families worse off than me - had to help the CBD evacuate on Monday. My workplace is under water! The highway is cut north and south. Oh well.

To all you Queensland flood victims, stay safe, and if it comes to crunch, and your in danger, get out your patrol and think of it as a big water crossing!!!

joelus;525931 seen that clip said:
Cool dude that one, he gave it a full glow plug shot before he started her up, sh..t I would have tried to start without the glows or the hubs and may have taken it for a swim!
If he's gets on the forum he should be 'HubsRIn".
Good luck to everyone near the river tonight, my brothers spent the afternoon helping mates move stuff out of their houses, I hope everyone who needed it got help too.

just rang my mate, He said the water is about 3 metters from his house, and his insurance is now up to scratch with full flood coverage from tuesday night.

his parents are in between toowoomba and ipswitch. said the water is running through the back yard.

joelus,
Good pics there bud
Good ol moronfield (Lived there 15 years to long)
The main issue up here at the moment is alot of towns are isolated
Not just that,
Towns have run outta food,fuel,town water and even power
Noone can get out and trucks cant get in
