Found below a flood evacuation centre today...

I had to have a bit of a chuckle. Should it read, "river- RETREAT!" ? Actually it is not as ironic as it seems as they seem to have avoided all flooding as high enough above the river. So they are likely to remain a prestigious location, unlike many similar adverts along the Warrego where the properties were flooded out - they will no doubt need to change their adverts to something a bit less river orientated. A friend of ours describes how river properties were cheap properties years ago after the '74 floods. Before this 2011 flood, river properties were generally expensive. No doubt we will revert back to cheap river properties - until we forget, again? It is hard to ever imagine forgetting this.
