One year ago I was celebrating being able to drive over this bridge and buy fresh fruit. Our suburb had been cut off by flood water for 5 days without any power, landline phones, mobile, internet etc. I had donated all the food from my fridge to the evacuation centre and had spent the last 5 days running the help desk.

Every day I drive over this bridge and I will never forget the feeling of gratitude of being reconnected with society.
