Flooded Studio :-((

Brisbane's average rainfall is around 1200 mm. a year. We received 106mm of that rain in the last 24 hours, and a good portion of that is in my studio! Talk about suffering for my art. I had my housemates steel capped work boots on to paint in today. I started to mop up, but that bucket is a killer for my back. See how the water runs out the front door? I am trying to talk my housemate into going down there and mopping for me. Don't like my chances. It is every man for himself in this house..

There is plenty more rain to come. Right up until Friday..


  1. How awful for you JJ (((HUGS)))

  2. My heart goes out to you JJ, I know exactly how this feels and not being able to do the work is much more frustrating.

    Pray for help. and don't carry the bucket, but keep it close to the door where you can squeeze out the water and then kick over the bucket, towards the outside of course.

  3. Thank you Anne hugs greatfully accepted.

    Bruce thanks. It didn't rain today, so the water has drained out the front door, and alan mopped up the alcove, top and bottom photo. He took 8 full buckets out. I have the fans on all day, the floor standing one, and 2 wall fans, explairs. The ris still more rain to come.

    No I wont lift that bucket, it was hard enough to ring out the mop. That action really maked my back ache badly..
