    Thank-you all for your concerns and kind words. Cyclone Larry hit the coast of far north Queensland as a category five cyclone which is the strongest ever to hit Australian shores but a long way from all the major cities. Fortunately no-one was killed although a lot were injured and thousands of homes destroyed and it entirely wiped out the sugar cane and banana industries which are all in that area of Australia.

    Hello lovely people

    How kind you all are to think of us.

    As Karen explained the cyclone was well to the north of Australia and that area is very prone to cyclones. Thankfully while the storm was actually rated higher than Katrina, our land is not below sea level like it is in New Orleans, so the flooding was not the same as experienced in the US.

    But again the Govts arent reacting as well as they should, with their relief packages. Most of the Banana crop has been wiped out and will be 18 months before back to normal. Bananas are the most bought item in our supermarkets! So we will all feel that effect next week when the price will soar.

    In SA, our risk is bushfires – we dont get cyclones fortunately. I think we are overdue for a serious one in the capital, although last year 10 people were killed in a fire in a country area.

    So thankyou again for your kind thoughts…..

    Glad to hear everyone is ok. I know how devestating hurricanes can be.

    Stay safe
