Wow!  It
rained so hard overnight.  Our motel
parking was under a corrugated metal roof right outside our room.  It was so loud I wore my earplugs.  As we went to leave out the driveway there
was heavy traffic.  The reason was the 4
lane street was flooded with about 5” of water over the sidewalk.  We had to detour thru neighborhoods to get to
the main road across the river and onto the A1. 
Downtown Mackay was pretty much flooded. 
We haven’t been able to outrun the rain, in fact it seems to be
following us.  Now there’s talk of a
cyclone forming in the Coral Sea.  We
made it to Airlie Beach and found sun….but after 2 hrs the heavy rain came back
and rained all night.  Our Mango House
hotel is nice, but at dusk the frogs come out. 
These have to be huge frogs of different types because there are
multiple sounds.
