Cyclone Oswald has hit the whole of the E coast of Australia with a bang.Power, phone, mobile,and internet have all been down for 2 days, but I am safe and so is my home -
Record flood levels this week and record heat waves the week before, and still fires raging in inland and Sth areas. bizarre!!!
Some people in Brissie may have no water tomorrow and flooding is really bad in Gladstone and Grafton.
Times like this I am grateful for what I have - friends, family, support networks and good coping skills -
