We are sending all our love and best thoughts back to those in our hometown Brisbane. We are now down here on the farm, which seems like a helpless million miles from the chaos and flood destruction which is unfolding in our beautiful part of the country.
We are captivated by the television, watching every snippet of footage - seeing streets we know and landmarks we love - all going under. Watching the determination and the courage of queenslanders packing their most precious items and heading for higher country.
We are also thinking of those towns and villages which had no warning - my heart breaks for you over and over again.
So much chaos and so much sadness. We send you all our love.
