My little part of the world has seen two cyclones cross the Queensland coast in the past week. The first was a category two, and a baby compared to category five, Cyclone Yasi. Category five is as big as you get but Yasi set new records for our country. As you can see from the image, not only was it a strong system but it was an unfathomable size as well, swallowing a huge chunk of Australia.
This is even more heartbreaking in the wake of the Queensland floods.
The cyclone season doesn’t end until April but hopefully Mother Nature is planning to holiday in Tahiti for the next few months. Otherwise, I think we really need to start delegating our natural disasters. Who’s up for a cyclone experience? Anyone?
What’s really inspiring about this time in our lives is that people are pulling together and helping one another. Australians have travelled from all across the country to donate their time and expertise to rebuilding after the Queensland floods and I know the victims of Yasi won’t be forgotten.
