You only ever hear of Adelaide getting like 7 days of 40+ weather!

well holy fuck it's gotten so much worse.

Toowoomba is a river. 8 people are dead, 72 are missing. Grant Denyer has been reduced to tears a number of times on TV this morning.

Grant Denyer always reduced me to wanting to punch him in the face, but that is for another time.

I hope your family are okay danny. I hope they find those missing, and more importantly alive!

These places were on stage 6 water restrictions previously....holy fuck.

Why do people hate Grant Denyer? Why do people hate well meaning personalities? Did I miss something?

He comes across as fake and just plain annyoing to me, at times. I used to really like Sunrise and that when I was in high school, I enjoyed getting up to watch Mel and Koschie.

But now its all gossipy stuff, and I might as well be watching entertainment tonight, most of the time.

Can we get some planes or helicopters to take the flood waters and pour them over WA?

Best wishes Danny, don't have family in QLD to my knowledge but I do know someone who was evacuated from Emerald. I am sure they'll be fine.

Deliberately lit bushfires, no less. Some assholes torched down a 98 yo's house in Adelaide yesterday, too.

ugh. i hope your family stays safe, danny. how horrible. the closest i can think of a situation i've been in was last year, lots of flooding, though it was even worse a few hours away in nashville. at least that was just one day and not getting more and more rain repeatedly for days on end.

and the bushfires out west make me sick, to think someone would deliberately do that shit. what possesses people to do something like that?
