Oh AM...its so so scary...I just wish Cyclone Yasi would just decide to turn around and head back to sea ; (
I am staying up all night. My heart is with them. Following #TCYasi on twitter. They're getting scared up there. Oh my heart breaks for them. On mattresses in their laundries. A-M xx
I too will be staying up A-M. I don't think I could snuggle up in bed and sleep knowing what those poor people are going through. It's beyond comprehension. I went to Sharyne's blog and read about her and her family taking shelter under the table. How frightening must that be; to just wait like that. They're in my prayers.Sharyn
My auntie is in Ayr...no power, animals frightened as well as the humans. her chicken coop has blown away and they're just hoping the roof stays intact. Told her to text through the night if she can't sleep... don't think I'll get much sleep either A-M
I'm inside that big thing. wow, looks very scary on the 'puter screen.Got a a final post just finsihed while we have power. I will report back in the morning if we have internet coverage. Louxx
A-m your link shows a frightening picture of what's happening and I just can't help staring at it. I'm so glad my friends in Yeppoon are safe, but can't imagine the terror felt by the people of Cairns and surrounding areas...one of my favourite places in the world. Robx
Did my comment go through?Not sure, anyway if not, I was "bragging" that I am inside that very cyclone right now.Townsville is on the southern side of the eye. They say the wind (which will get up to 180ks/hr here is Tsv. is not the problem, it's the storm surge which will flood almost half the city.The later the cyclone hits the better, to allow the high tide to recede as much as possible.Got a final post done before "bedtime'.Strangely, the wind has just dropped.Weird I tell you!louxx
Mr FF's fam live in Cairns and Innisfail ( like all good Italians) and I feel 100% stressed just thinking about it. When will it all end? This collective anxiety and worry is just terrible. This state needs some Good News instead of all this dreadful dreadful apocalyptic drama.
I am so worried for friends in Far North Queensland. What a battering the state has received this year. Hugs and thoughts and hopes for safety tonight.
Sorry Louise, comment moderation on as I suffer from a couple of stalkers! A-M xx
NO, wasn't the moderation, it was me talking, blogging, watching tv, drinking tea, answering phone and texts. My fault.These cyclones are very busy times I've discovered.It's 9:30pm, wind is 100k/hr, tide up to 6.6 metres already, and we have power and tv. Can't believe it?
Louise, check out Faux Fuchsia, she's 'Panic Baking'... gotta love her.... and cue the snake... just for Blighty.A-M xx
I feel so guilty thinking of sleep when all those people are going to endure this terrifying night without a wink of rest. Good luck Louise and others!
Hi girls I'm still up too and glued to the TV. Cannot believe the size of this monster. Louise you are going to have blog fodder for weeks. Off to check out FF baking.xxx
They're going to have to tie Peter Overton down on Channel Nine soon. He's going to be blown away. A-M xx
That's what I was thinking! He has signed off now, no doubt to get to a basement somewhere and ride it out.
Thinking of you, hoping it isn't as horrible as it seems...
As someone who lives in Hurricane country I feel so badly for these people! I know Sharyne and her family are hunkered down and riding it out. I wish her and her family, along with all the other families in the path of Yasi safety from the storm!!!Kat
This storm is HUGE. It looks like it will eat all of Australia. Please be safe everyone. Thank you for sharing this and the previous flooding with us A-M. It puts things much more in perspective to us over here in the US. I feel connected to you all.
Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave me a comment. I love hearing from you. A-M xx
