Oh yeah. To put it in scale, the area of Queensland under water is equivalent to Germany, France and the low countries in between. (not quite sure what that means in the states, proably some little state like Texas or something)

A big heads up to all our mates working in Brisbane (Queensland Australia). The city will more than likely suffer a pretty bad flood in the next day or two as the Brisbane River breaks it's banks. These guys were sent home from work today when the city got pretty much shut down and won't be working in the near future (certainly not at full capacity)

No doubt they'll work their way thru it but I just wanted to let you all know the situation. Hopefully the place will be cleaned up in time for the ACMC at Easter. If not, we'll sit in a pub and get drunk.

On a more sobering note. QLD floods death toll stands at 10, with 78 missing so far. Hearts go out to all those suffering thru this ordeal.

Thanks for listening
