    Yasi

    Hey, folks,

    It's easy to focus on our daily blizzard. But meanwhile, the largest cyclone in history is bearing down on our friends in Queensland. Live updates here:

    http://www.abc.net.au/news/abcnews24/

    What a mess! Winds of 300 KPH (That's like 180 mph to Americans). Three feet of rain in 24 hours. A 25 foot storm surge. Ouch!

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Looks like it's going to be epic. I saw this graphic on another site...

    Yeah my friends in Brisbane are panicing. They survived the floods untouched just by a few feet. Mother natures is a getting wild.


    BTW that storm that was supposed to knock us for a six was so overstated up here but that what the media can do when they get hold of a story.
    cheers
