Central (Wet) Queensland

It's been a while since I last posted, not because I've been lazy (well, not this time, anyway) but simply because I haven't done anything interesting.

I pulled into Mount Morgan on Monday, 15th November and I have been here ever since. It has, literally, rained every single day since I've been here, including some days when it didn't stop raining all day. I have been into Rockhampton a couple of times and took a quick spin up to Mackay (the day before it drowned), but apart from that about all I have done is catch up on my reading.

Today is the first day I have seen the sun (again, literally) and even so, it is now 12:15 and the overcast is starting to thicken up. I was going to take off last Monday and head inland to try and get away from the rain. Lucky I didn't, there have been more floods everywhere and half the roads are closed.

My intention was to go back down to Brisbane over the Xmas-New Year period and then head down to Tassie, but bugger this! I'm going to head back to the west and get away from this "La Nina" effect which the weather bureau says is going to last all summer. Right now the Murchison and the Gascoyne areas are sounding pretty good.

See you in the New Year.

Yeah, it sure is wet!! Good luck finding somewhere dry - the rain seems rather indiscriminate!

Happy travels, and Merry Xmas!!
