A terrible start to 2011

I am horrified by what is happening in Queensland, Australia at the moment and am so sorry for all of those affected by the floods. It is a very terrible start to 2011 and will be difficult for them for many months.

According to the Guardian,

An area the size of France and Germany combined has been hit by the flooding of three river systems. More than 200,000 people in 20 towns and cities have been affected.

Just terrible.


  1. Isnt it just terrible, my thoughts and prayers are with all those affected.

  2. It's awful, I can't imagine how difficult it must be for them.


    And than the people must be careful too for the snakes, the crocodiles and other dangerous animals who search for a dry place in and at homes !!!

  4. I have family there and we feel for them

  5. Yes TRULY it all is as bad & more in & around Brisbane, QLD, Aueeie..My 4 grown children live other side of Brissy, one was evacuated the other night..But Thank God all mine are safe..My heart goes out to all those families who have lost family members.. Possesions can be replaced, Not lives.. God Bless.. Best Wishes,
