Qld Floods - let it be over soon!

Living in Australia, we get used to the extreme conditions to a point, that is until something like the Qld floods that are currently threatening life, livestock, property & livelihoods in Qld.

To think not that long ago a large portion of the area now inundated by floods was in drought. Farmers were losing stock & crops to lack of water, now they're having the same horrible outcome from too much water.

I was very saddened to wake up to the news that there are now 8 souls lost (RIP) and another 70 people missing.

I have just read that the flooded area is larger than France & Germany combined!

To my friends in Qld, to any visitors to this blog from Qld, or those of you who also have friends & family under threat, my thoughts & most positive vibes possible go out to you all.

Let's hope Mother Nature eases back a bit and gives everyone a chance to get to safety.

If anyone is wanting to donate but not sure how, this link goes to the Qld Government donation site - http://www.qld.gov.au/floods/donate.html

Till next time,
