Yasi

Oh, a band of rain approaching Queensland. I am inclined to say don't panic Captain Mainwarring, but then I recall ex Premier Brumby telling us tomorrow, a day in early February a couple of years ago, would be a bad day. We thinking people thought, ho hum.

Authorities are now prone to over exaggerating risk from unfriendly weather. I hope they are this time. What a pity there weren't warnings to Toowoomba and the Lockyer Valley.

  2. Australia has always been a land of contrasts, but sometimes it does get a bit much. Poor Queensland, they have so much re-building to do. And a cycloine on its way to Cairns.

    I've just read the reports on Yasi's imminent arrival. It sounds bloody terrifying! I hope the loss of life - both human and animal - is low. V.
