much of Cairns got flooded from all the rain.. started to worry when I looked out to the street sunday night at 11:30pm and thought "hang on... since when does the street lights reflect off the road so much....
" then i realised we were flooded in. both ends of the street were cut off.
and some crazy lady playing in the gutter water..
it was actually shallow there. as we were taking the photos, the water was still slowly rising - coming from both creeks and swampland near us. by about 12:30 the rain had stopped for most of the night and water had gone down by morning. Dunno how the ute across the road faired... while we were out there, water was halfway up it.
