Our last day in Sheung Wan, and flooding in my home town of Gympie, Qld.
We spent our last day rehearsing for The Empress of China in Sheung Wan today. After a break, we'll begin technical rehearsals in City Hall on Wednesday.
After two full run-throughs today while still recovering from the flu, I'm feeling extremely tired, but nothing can prevent me from checking the flood status in my home town of Gympie in Queensland where my parents still live.
Gympie is rather unique. The Mary River is the source of flooding there, and the river bank separating the larger Eastern side of Gympie is quite high, so the Mary River needs to rise significantly to flood to the East. Unfortunately, once it gets that high, it's like watching water run out of a full bathtub with the taps turned on, and the flooding can be severe. Main Street is definitely in trouble, again!
With rain predicted to continue for several days yet, and the ground already completely soaked, deeper flooding is almost guaranteed.
Fortunately, my parents live in a very high area of Gympie, and they're still reachable by phone and internet.
