Water, water everywhere...

Brisbane has had some rather serious rain last night.

Here's some photos from the ABC News website: http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2008/11/20/2424869.htm

Now a quick question to all my friends in Brisbane. Are you all right? Please let me know.

Good to hear you're ok.

Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink...

Heh, it's like that, isn't it? Not putting away the shower timer any time soon.

Hopefully these downpours will help dampen the country down a bit and lower the risk of any more bushfires this year...

Storm cell almost directly overhead, maybe half mile off.
More water...

We're fine so far. There's a severe storm/hail/flash flooding warning for our area, but I think we're high enough that only the laundry should flood.

Storm's passed. The back yard is flooded, but it didn't quite go up high enough to get into the laundry. ^_^ The hail didn't even last too long. Our fence is damaged, but not badly enough to let the dog out. Some tree matter down, but we only really have palms and all the loose fronds came down before tonight.

I hope it fucked up the crows, heh.

I'm OK
Nae much but water here. There was a lot of wind and lightning last night along with torrential _horizontal_ rain but there's been no de-roofing, no need for tarps and certainly no power outages.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
