Yeah, they announced that on 7 when the centre went offline.
I've been watching the US weather, too. My friends in Colorado are
experiencing -33C windchill temps. Last night they had -23C when we
had +23C. Bizarre symmetry. The rest of the country is having major
ice, snow and cold, with potential tornadoes in the warmer southern
states. I know the doubters don't want to hear this, but climate
change has a lot to answer for. The predictions weren't just about
temperature change, but was about extreme weather events. So even if
we had a disaster fund via a levy, it may never be enough now. Let's
hope I'm wrong.
Good luck to all the Qld linkers. We're thinking of you.

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
