A Mild Flood for Gympie
flood, not a fully fledged monster like we had 10 years ago when the
Mary river rose 22 metres, this one was just a little 12 metre flood.
Gympie has a North side (where I live) and a South side (where I lived 10 years ago
when big flood happened, North and South are connected by two bridges, this
photo shows the river rising at the lowest of the two bridges, this is normally the
busiest bridge (except when its under water).
This is what the "Kidd Bridge" looks like when you can't see it,as we couldn't
for three days last week.
This is usually a lovely little track down to a boat ramp and picnic area.
Compared to the major flooding that has been happening over the last 2/3 months
in North Queensland this one was just a pup, never the less we are looking at a
damages cost of over a $ million and it never even flooded a single building.
As the February bushfires in Victoria so clearly showed, the forces of nature can
make mans efforts look quite puny.
I've got about half of my unpacking and stowing away done, thankfully there's
Hooray, until next time we meet.
