Thinking of our Queensland friends

There is an awful feeling of impending doom here in Australia today. There is a severe cyclone due to hit the far north Queensland coast this evening. How much can the people of our beautiful northern state endure? The state is just recovering from devastating floods, and now this. I am old enough (just!) to remember Cyclone Tracy which hit Darwin on Christmas Day in 1974. And this cyclone is shaping up to be just as destructive.
 
To my blog friends in the path of tropical cyclone Yasi, we are thinking of you and praying for your safety.

Amazing coverage of Yasi's approach here.

And posted to the Queensland Police Facebook page - typical Aussie bravado!

  3. And all we down South can do is sit and wait to see what happens and pray that the destruction is not as great as thought. Oh how we love to holiday in Queensland

  5. How awful for Queensland. I had not heard about Cyclone Tracy until I read a book by Bill Bryson and it sounded terrifying. I will be thinking good thoughts for them and watching the news.
