Oh! My Country, My Country Australia

Australia is being battered left, right and centre. And yes, up and down.

Droughts for a long time, now floods, cyclones, heatwaves and bushfires. I know so many people that are affected by all that Mother Nature is throwing out at her. My thoughts are with all of them.

I am feeling so lucky and spoilt by the fact that I am going to be enjoying a wonderful Sunday with blue skies and a top of 16 degrees C.

Re: Oh! My Country, My Country Australia

It's hard to know what to say. But yes, my thoughts are with them. Think about people in other countries like Tahiti or Bangladesh though - were similar things keep happening and they have neither the money, infrastructure, etc, to cope. The fact no-one lost their lives in the recent hurricane is just a miracle.
