My whole life has been one disaster, every time something can go wrong does go wrong, directly or indirectly, big or small, even the weather causes many problems, changing of the seasons, but one day this must all change.
With all that has been happening all around the world, my thoughts go out to them, I have been through many seasons of wet weather causing a lot of damage, luckily I have not lots a home due to cyclones, floods, landslides, or earth quakes, I hope I never have to face such a disaster.
From December we have had meters of rain, looked as though we might have had to build an ark, some may still have to do so, the rain keeps falling causing floods and landslides. Complete towns have been under flood water with dams close to failing, until some of the run off was let over the spill way causing the level to rise higher.
About a half of my town was under water over the holidays, with many people leaving their homes, businesses lost much stock, food in short supply, the roads were cut stopping trucks from bringing in supplies. People may think the worst is behind them, not by the reckoning of some who see the future, flood waters are going to return to be a meter higher than the last time, hopefully I will be safe, unless the water builds up on the flat ground.
I have seen many floods, been cut off when we lived in the country, there were no helicopters or rescue people to come to our aid, a train to bring food if the line hadn't been washed away or flooded. Even when the sun shone and we didn't receive rain in our area, the creeks rose to cut us off for weeks at a time. I have been through many a flooded river, now that I have grown old, been ducked under the water too many times, water is not one of my favorite things. I'm a fish out of water. Hope all the disasters settle soon.
But if some people are right, this is a fore runner for the end of the world on 22/12/2012. These people have been wrong before, so we just have to watch and wait.
