Leaving Brisbane

After much contemplation we are going to leave Brisbane tomorrow, January 13, 2011. The impacts if the flooding are expected to get worse in our area.

We have been following the flooding issue online and we are so impressed with the kind and helpful nature of Australian people rallying together to help each other. From volunteering to fill sand bags, to offering places to stay, offering to take care of pets, donations etc. We were unsuccessful in finding options to volunteer within walking distance of where we are.

We will leave for the airport in the morning and will fly out later in the day to Auckland, New Zealand. We will stay there until January 20, 2011 when we return to Sydney for 2 nights and then we fly home. Our thoughts are with the people of Australia during this difficult time. For those who would like to make a financial donation click on The Premiers Flood Relief Appeal to make an online donation.
