A mate took his family to Craig's hut yesterday. He said they got a light dusting of snow there.

not entirely, the job site at work is still a touch damp / muddy, but it's drying out. Where i am on the Southside of Brisbane was fine as far as any flooding goes, i see news coverage tonight showing plenty of houses being cleaned up after water went through them up on the Northern outskirts of Brissy though.
