It isn't difficult to understand why many people in Brisbane and Ipswich feel quite anxious when the rain starts pouring down.
Last year was so very difficult for thousands of people, and you may know people who haven't returned to their homes.
Some may never return.
Standing at the back of the Sunshine Coast ABC studio today, I watched fast waters course down a swollen creek, whilst a very calm black swan took advantage of treats that had made their way to the surface.
It is our wet season and a bit of flash flooding is to be expected, but I hope everyone's okay.
If it all does get on top of you mentally, ring a friend and have a chat. They'll understand.
