It’s been really scary watching the water rise right in front of our place. This is the closest I’ve come from having a river front property in Brisbane. The water slowly began to rise at the front of our place mid afternoon on Wednesday.

This photo below was taken right in front of our place, where early in the day the water would go just above your ankles.  

This is just around the corner…

Then it slowly began to look like a small pond.

The water was pouring out of the drains as well as coming from the river.

By the end of the day, the water slowly worked its way up right to the front gate and thankfully that’s how far it got to us. We were very lucky!
