My Aussie brethren have been battling a heinous sea monster these last few days.
It can be hard to really absorb the magnitude of natural disasters, particularly when they occur far away and do not impact on you personally. The sheer amount of water in Queensland right now is staggering to behold. When was the last time you canoed through a McDonald's restaurant? This is Brisbane, third largest capital city in Australia.
Ghost town indeed. Good to see people keeping their sense of humour, even in circumstances like this.
