Ah cool, I think I've seen that, sometimes along Mt Nebo road you can see it over the edge down the hill a bit?

If i have to spend another hour long run sweating in my undies on the indoor trainer, I think I will explode. :evil:

When will this crappy weather end????? :(

one bridge spanning the creek between Ashgrove and St John's Wood.
Anybody know which recent deluge claimed this bridge ?

I think I posted a pic of this a few weeks back. It was the first batch of floods we had this year, and the cause was a full sized power pole that had been rammed directly into the upstream steel I-beam, which pushed the the downstream one off the supports (including breaking it out of the concrete). The decking went with it. The upstream beam stayed until a crane took it away. The downstream one was bent link a banana and they were hefty beams. Enterprising kids were using it to balance on across the creek to get to school.

A foot bridge was washed away at the back of stafford city by the previous floods. Well when I say that the bridge was ok but the creek bank on one side was gone.

I'm pretty sure it took nearly 6 months for the them to fix that.

Soaked again this morning on the commute in.

But never fear Brisbane commuters - I ordered some waterproof shoecovers online last night, so we will have 6 years of drought starting when they arrive.

Problem with the wet weather gear ive tried is that in this current humid weather, im as wet underneath from sweat, as i am from outside rain.

Shoe guards are great though..... if i have dry feet, all is good with the world.

A cyclone is coming boys and girls. Time to buy that wet weather bike or a trainer and get as many kms while the sun is still sort of shining :P

My shoe covers turned up today (fast delivery!!) so it will be nice and dry tomorrow morning.

Sad thing is, I now actually want it to rain so I can give them a try... :)

Coottha was not too bad this morning...

Looking to the south-east, most of Brisbane except Yeronga area was under cloud or rain.

Splendid example of a brisbane pothole here...

These photos were taken at around 7am, later on in the day traffic congestion was severe, in part due to the weather conditions.
