I don't know whether a lot of stuff about Australia hits the news overseas but recently our sunny state of Queensland was hit by a flood that covered it underwater, and now has been hit by a cyclone for the more northern part. So Queensland itself is totally underwater and in wreckage. I just wanna go and give all of the people there a hug.

Last night some flash flooding happened in my State and city Victoria, Melbourne. I was caught in it on the way back for dinner, it was so flooded that the flood water drains in the suburbs were actually spewing water. The park across the road from where I live is totally flooded and I don't think I will be able to walk there today as its literally underwater.

Obviously the weather wasn't nearly as horrible as whats happened to Queensland but its strange when really bad weather comes to you.

Here are so photos of Melbourne from yesterday, considering it rained all last night i would suggest they're still very accurate. Tonight is my BFF's 21st Birthday combined with his fathers 60th in the city. I am slightly concerned we wont be able to get in!


This is our city, (one of the major roads) the train is either heading towards or away from Flinders St Stations, Melbourne's most central station.




This is one of the major roads heading into the city. Was more than likely going to be the one we will be taking tonight... (Can you see why I'm worried?)
