Rain, rain, rain and more rain!
It has been bucketing down here.  SE Qld is awash and the northern Brisbane surburbs got drenched today.  This was my raingauge at 9am this morning Monday 11 October.  The inner cylinder holds 25mm (1 inch).

179mm (7 inches) in 24hrs!

It has been wet since Friday morning.  We have had 355mm (14 inches) up to Monday night.
Houses are flooded and roads are cut but we live on a hill so we are fine.  I got both children to school this morning in the torrential rain with a few detours to avoid flooded roads.
The rain has eased but more is due over the next few days.

I'm still sick with the post flu infection.  I'm on my second lot of antibiotics and improving slowly.  I can't talk long without coughing, but it isn't waking me up in the middle of the night any more.  I'm glad I had the flu needle as I hate to think I could have been worse.  I'm doing lots of reading while I get better.

New Project
I've started stitching a small project.  No photos yet.  I have to get out my thread heaven so I can continue.
