Yasi – The Gift That Just Keeps Giving

This time it’s South Australia.

From the ABC: Outback storms leave an inland sea

Nearly all outback roads are closed across South Australia because of the widespread drenching in recent days.

Thunderstorms have affected a wide area as ex-Tropical Cyclone Yasi moves across inland regions.

Many cattle stations including Anna Creek are accessible only by helicopter.

The landscape is sodden across a wide area of South Australia. Yongala received 128 millimetres of rain in 24 hours, beating a record set 121 years ago.

There are 25.4 millimeters in an inch, and the Outback is not known as a garden paradise.

Recent events in Australia are quite sobering.

It’s all part of the climate change, and is tied into the huge snow storms that have been sweeping the US and Europe.

In the week preceding the start of the Yukon Quest, Whitehorse was getting a warm Chinook wind, and the temperatures were warmer than the Gulf Coast half the time.

Things are really messed up.
