Flooding in Brisbane (Part 2)

This afternon I went to the local grocery store for a dozen eggs and a loaf of bread.  They were completely out of  bread and low on eggs.  Apparently there had been a run on certain items that morning.
  So, tonight Barb & I went back to night just to look around and pick up a couple other things.  I took a few pics with my cell phone camera.  Most of the shelves were full as usual, but they were out of a few things; bread, beans and bottled water.
  It does seem a bit odd that just a few kilometers from us is a major disaster area and here seems life as usual.  Heck, the rain stopped and it was even sunny today.
  We have been watching the local TV coverage and it is odd to see places we recognise underwater.  I think we have watched more TV in the last two days than we have in the last two months.  The river is supposed to peak at 4am at 5.2 meters (17ft) above normal.

This is the bread section


A bit low on meat

Completely out of bottled water, but the pop the next aisle over is full.
