The main cyclone has passed over coastal Queensland and although the material loss in some places was great there fortunately hasn’t been any confirmed lives lost.  I felt ‘we’ were all holding our collective breaths yesterday because the predictions of possible damage and loss of life were so dire and the Aussie flood devastation was  so recent.

The world feels  smaller  with the constant and better reporting of international news and the floods in  Brazil and Pakistan  were bigger and more devastating.. and we have some better resources .. so we’re lucky.

But as one caller on the radio said, ‘one in one hundred year events seem to be happening more often’ !
