Gulf Island Building.


email in from our friends down in Sydney in Australia...

If the east coast of the US thinks they have it bad, there is an area down in OZ which is larger than France and Germany combined which has sustained enormous flooding.

22 towns have been evacuated, water is up to the roofs, a number of lives have been lost, it's a major tragedy.

The anticipated repair bill so far is around 8 Billion $.

300 mm of rain in 24 hours, which is 4 times the normal rainfall for the entire month. In some areas, the water level has not peaked, and isn't expected to do so until next Tuesday.

Usually, they celebrate NYD down at the beach. Doesn't look like it this year.

That's horrible. I hope your friends are alright.

They talked about it on the radio today. I've never heard of such a huge area flooding like that.

I don't mean to sound stupid, but how many inches are there in 300mm?

Something like 25.387 millimeters to the inch, or about 305 millimeters to the foot.

Any way you slice it, that's a bunch of water.

All the city water systems have become contaminated because they are now underwater. It's a really major disaster.

Keith, I wanted to say thanks and happy new years to you eh? (That's was said in my best Canadian accent! ) I recently was given a link to your thread and have been reading it intently. I enjoyed reading through it and wanted so badly to reply along the way but it since it probably wouldn't have made sense due to where I was with it I didn't. Now that I'm at the end of my journey I can finally say thanks!

Really great thread!

Oh, I almost forgot, happy new year!

Thanks Jim...it's a good thing I didn't have to hang on for another three hours..I wouldn't have made it.

2011 has dawned here with a beautiful - but very cold - bright sunny morning. Heavy frost covering everything outside and the water barrels have a good layer of ice.

It's going to be a great year!
