Today is the first chance I have had to resume any normal activity following the recent flooding from ex-tropical cyclone Debbie. I wasn't badly affected and my heart goes out to those who have lost so much. I was only slightly inconvenienced by being flooded out and unable to get home. Luckily though, my sons lived nearby and I was able to stay with them. We used to get flooded in a lot when the boys were younger as we lived across low lying causeways. Knowing how to cook from scratch was a handy skill when you had hungry boys and only had basic staples on hand with no access to any shops.
