Floods in Brisbane

We plan to get back to a normal schedule next week; the past two have just seen too much work, too little sleep, and too much nursing a wife down with the cold of the century (actually, the nursing part isn’t too much) to find the time I hoped I’d have to post.

One thing I would like to mention are the floods in Queensland, Australia.  Our friend, Jess, of Dr. Gateau, is based in Brisbane, so naturally, we checked in.  She has just arrived back in country after an extended stay aboard, and she describes the situation not unlike New Orleans post Katrina. In her words: “The amount of damage is just incomprehensible.” Fortunately, she is safe, but up to 20,000 homes are at risk, and some belonging to friends of Jess are completely under water.

If you’re interested in helping the relief effort, Jess advises that you visit the Premier’s Flood Relief Appeal:
