Cyclones....!!!!!

The cyclone that travelled down the coast of Western Australia, stayed out to sea and slowed down, it then hit the colder waters which downgraded it as it crossed over land, into a rain depression. Which we're all thankful for.

However, Queensland is really struggling. Not only with flooding since December, with nearly 2/3 of the state under water, about 3 times the size of Texas, which did go into New South Wales, then Victoria. Then they were hit with two cyclones. With the worst one last night, a category 5 cyclone, Yasi.

It's ladies like Jenny of ELEFANTZ I'm concerned for.

With all the flooding both in north WA, in the eastern states and the cyclones, the food bowl of Australia is severely descimated.

  1. Australia has been much in my thoughts and prayers. There has been so much devastation from the floods and cyclones. I hope and pray things soon settle down, although I realize it will take years to recover from some of this.

  2. I can't stop thinking about Australia and we have been praying fervently for them. We will continue to do so.

  4. It is so sad what is going on there. I just wish that the weather would start being kinder to them.
