Cyclone Yasi romped through the outback and finally decreased to a low depression over Mt Isa 600 hundreds miles from the coast. The little outback towns had never experienced a cyclone before so they were in for a shock. Their houses are not built to withstand cyclonic winds either. I haven't heard any news about damage done in the outback yet. It is dropping a lot of rain out there too, which will cause some flash flooding. The news tonight was about the hair raising stories of people who didn't evacuate and stayed in their houses which were shredded around them. ANYWAY enough of sad tales of our natural disasters. When I feel like getting a mood lift, I often stroll around the garden.
I liked the sun shining on the bromeliads between the palm trees.
A water dragon enjoys the rain.
