This is beginning to feel like trying to understand the scope of the limitless universe. I see the news using analogies of the area of flooding as being the size of two large U.S. states, or a couple of European countries.
Yesterday morning the news was that some areas had crested and the waters were subsiding, but along with that, the news was that yet another area was about to be inundated - as though the sequence of floods just isn't going to stop anytime soon.
On the ECushings list the poster who signs as "Suzie of Oz," left this message:
Here is an official Government site that offers ways to donate to the flood
appeal if that's your wish, and also warns about scam sites and what to do
to avoid donating to the wrong sorts of places -http://www.qld.gov.au/floods/donate.html
