That's good to hear -- I'd been wondering if the deluge had affected any UMSFers. Keep your head above water and best of luck to you and your neighbors sad.gif

I'm alive and well here in Brislantis.

Great to hear you are okay, and that you are keeping a good sense of humor about it.

Been wondering how you guys were doing down there, SFJ, admit that I was a bit afraid to ask. Hope that you & our other Australian friends are okay & stay that way!

The flood water is just a short walk from where I live.

Hey SFJ, stay dry up there in Brislantis!
I'm sure another drought is just around the corner mate smile.gif laugh.gif

No seriously, you know what they say "Queensland. Beautiful one day, Venice the next."
Oh and New South Wales challenges you to a game of water polo at Suncorp Stadium wink.gif

It's cool everyone, Australians cope with disaster using humour and self-deprication all the time. It's just the way we are.

OK serious mode - everyone in Australia is thinking of all of you up there in Queensland. We're ready to do whatever is needed to get you back on your feet. Stay safe.

It is good to hear that everyone is ok downunder, I guess the 2 feet of snow here is not so much to have to deal with.

One of the new Aussie heroes in our midst folks.
The reaction by the public to the flood crisis has been amazing.
People in their tens of thousands have been volunteering, helping complete strangers, working through the mud and mess trying to bring whole communities back to life.

Thanks you SFJCody! smile.gif

It just feels like the right thing to do. I escaped essentially unscathed so it seems fair that I should put in a few hours every weekend to help others who were less fortunate.

Spare a thought for our friends in Queensland tonight who will be in the path of Cyclone Yasi (Category 5 at the moment) bearing down on them tonight.
This is the largest storm to ever hit Queensland and comes only weeks after the devasting floods.
There's an ocean storm surge coinciding with a high tide as well as 250kph winds, so damage from this 500km wide storm has the potenital to be significant.
You can follow the storms path here: http://www.goes.noaa.gov/sohemi/sohemiloops/shirgmscol.html

Stay safe Queenslanders.

Well said, Astro0. Been thinking about the Queenslanders all day, actually; sure hope that they catch a good break here somehow.

If this report from Reuters is accurate, it seems that Queensland was indeed spared the worst possible. I sincerely hope so.

Thoughts go out to our friends in Japan. Pandaneko has been helping out here with translation of Jaxa documents lately and he and Subaru have participated in the Hayabusa threads in the past. Any other UMSF members in Japan?
