Water rising

All day I have been flicking to news about the flooding in Queensland and am concerned now that parts of Brisbane are threatened. I was in Toowoomba in 1974 when the Brisbane River flooded and the aftermath was terrible. School was closed for a week, although some of us borders who had arrived back from New Guinea made it and were there alone. Then there was a major outbreak of 'flu and I was in sick bay for a week.
We all have good friends in Toowoomba and Brisbane, and Gympie, the rural town where my parents shop is also flooded.

On a brighter note, see if you can see this YouTube link. Han-solo and her friend perform a song! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7axNtdWtzU
