Sorry for the radio silence! It’s been an intense few days that no one in Brisbane saw coming – how very un-Australian to be experiencing Australia Day with the worst weather I’ve ever seen! When ex-Cyclone Oswald descended on us, I don’t think anyone expected the magnitude of damage that would result. We were lucky enough to escape with only a few very bent trees and lost power, but others have had their whole lives washed away in a heartbeat. It’s especially heartbreaking to see so soon after the 2011 floods.
But it’s amazing to see how the community has banded together to help each other out, and really demonstrates the Australian spirit of mateship. If you can spare a little, or even a lot, you can donate to the Red Cross here to help out those in need.
