You try to put certain things into perspective. Ignoring plenty of your issues and daily problems, even my possible speeding ticket that I might be getting in a couple weeks for being a tad over (hopefully nothing comes of it), but in the end you've got to be thankful some things arent as bad as they could be. I'm always the optimist, its how I dont suicide into a large industrial blender.
Over in Queensland they're just getting over one of the biggest floods that has ever washed over them. There are pictures of flash floods where the water was ankle deep and 22min later probably 10-15ft high. Its unbelievable. Now they're about to be hit by a massive category 4 cyclone. Fingers crossed everyone got out of there instead of staying behind to protect whatever. Plenty will, its just human nature. But seriously, there are times when you need to turn your back and just run. By this time tomorrow the cyclone will have smashed through some of the cities. Worst part? This probably wont be the last natural disaster that area suffers this year. Its going to be really bad.
Picture shows the cyclone, to the left is Queensland. That thing is massive.
