It's still raining. In fact, it's been raining in Townsville all year! That's right -- almost all of last month and again in February.
We're completely cut off to the north, west and south by flood waters and if there were roads to the east, they'd be cut, too. The supermarkets only have long life milk, because the trucks can't get through, and a consignment of groceries has been sent up to Cairns by barge.
Some areas of NQ have received over a metre of rain in the past seven days.
And what am I writing about at the moment? Funny you should ask. It's a story set in Cape York in the wet season. I am so totally soaking up the appropriate vibes.
