I live in Brisbane. I love Brisbane. I sit in my safe, dry house here on the south side and I weep. I weep for the loss of precious items...photos, letters, home movies, etc. I weep for the loss of things.....beds, TVs, curios, pianos, etc. I weep for the clean up that people will encounter for months and months to come. I weep for the loss of income for so many. I weep especially for the loss of life. Whether it is a beloved family pet or a brother, I weep.

It will take a long time to recover from this. The areas most affected were our farms, dairies and cattle owners. Trucks won't be able to get through due to road damage.
I have grown up being taught at church to have a supply of food and other items on hand. This teaching has helped me and my family many times over the years. It is wise counsel and again we are reminded just why this is taught. You NEVER know!!!
