Around this time two years ago Victoria, the State that I live in, was hit with the worst bushfires in the history of the nation resulting in a massive loss of life and wide spread devastation. At the time I remember the number of text messages and telephone calls from concerned friends and family. The roles are reversed this week and it is with a feeling of deja vu that I contact my parents, brother and family and cousins who are all in or close by the floods that are devastating South-East Queensland to check that are all right. With the death toll set to continue to rise along with the flood water it it is yet another reminder of the harshness of this beautiful country we inhabit. Wishing safety to everyone affected in this area.
