Yasi veered south and hit other places hard, and by early morning I had a cheerful and relieved phonecall from him. Despite the destruction and ruin of towns and crops no lives have been lost. Miraculous yes - but a tribute to the common sense and community organisation that swung into place during the emergency.
The year of the Tiger ended today and the Rabbit is hopping along in its place. I'm taking a breather and I'll be back after New Year.
Happy Year of the Rabbit!
