    I know that there is a terribly huge cyclone in Australia. I hope all are safe.

    Here in the States, we have had a huge winter storm sweep across the central and eastern part of the country. Particularly bad in Chicago and I know we have members there.

    Stay safe everyone!

    Yes, I was talking to a member in Aus. It is due to strike today.

    Also ice storm and blizzard for some in the states.

    Stay safe and warm, you are in my thoughts

    yes, I chatted with 2 in Australia but they were both much farther south. Maybe 45 min north of Sydney. They have extreme heat though. 104 F and no air conditioning. WOW

    Here in Ohio we have had ice. Better today but the ice has caused power outages in some areas. Some counties with snow emergencies declared where you will get arrested if you are on the roads unless you have an emergency. Not where I am, however. It ls fine here.

    My thoughts go out to all the people in Australia. I can only imagine how hard it is there now, just having the flood and now this. Hope you all are safe.

    I'm in Eastern, USA and so far we have just had rain.Our temperatures are dropping and the winds are picking up, but looking at the radars it seems like the snow might miss us. They have been talking about tornados down south being a possibility.

    In the Midwest, USA my mom had 20 inches of snow. At my house we had 1/2 inch of ice, 3 inches of sleet, and 2 inches of snow. Crazy winter!

    Here in Connecticut in the United States the snow banks are 5 feet high. We've had several building roofs collapse because of the weight of the snow. Now the ice storm just ended. They are predicting more snow for Saturday and maybe another snow storm next Tuesday.

    Is it spring yet?

    I was literally snowed into my house yesterday. I actually didn't mind, it was nice to have a day off.

    I am from the other side of Australia where we have a terrible drought and have had temperatures of over 40 degrees. We did have a smaller cyclone hit us last weekend, but minimal damage in comparison. So all the flooding in Queensland is pretty foreign to us!

    The cyclone was a category 5 - the worse you can get and it has caused severe damage to many places, but there hasn't been a single loss of human life. Australians are very resilient and they will recover - there are donations, people and services helping them from all over the country - we are known for our support in times of adversity. We have just had severe flooding in 4 Eastern states and in particular Queensland - where 20 people at least died in the floods - so 2011 has been very despairing for a large number of Australians.

    Nothing like you guys have had. But it is blowing up a gale out side. I'm anxious as my H is travelling home. I panic cos my trauma was crash related, I go out of my mind when family are travelling especially in bad weather.

    I can't get the 'what if' and flashbacks of my accident out of my mind. Counting down the minutes until H is home safe.

    This morning the sun is shining, but we also have rain and gale force winds. Up to around 80 mph or more, possible later today. http://www.ptsdforum.org/c/styles/default/xenforo/smilies/eek.png

    Better not hang the washing out just yet. Oh and hubby is going to be in a real good mood today, as it will keep knocking Sky TV signal off. Time to push them to lay cable in our area me thinks. http://www.ptsdforum.org/c/styles/default/xenforo/smilies/rolleyes.png

    My cousin is in Brisbane right now. He goes there every winter to see his daughter (my second cousin0 who is married to an Aussie. He said her Mother in Law was in Queensland when the cyclone hit and they still have not heard how they faired out during the storm. I am hoping all is well. He had a lot to deal with when he first got there with the flooding and all too. It has been a rough year for the land down under.

    Our weather has been unseasonably warm, even for us, the last few days. You'd never even know it was the middle of winter. "Borrowed" from a friends FB status today...

    Just heard on the news that the state of Florida could be sunned-in for the next several days. Residents have been urged to hunker down at your nearest beach and/or tiki bar for further instructions. Use extreme caution when braving this blizzard of sunshine, preferably SPF 30. We are asking our friends and relatives to the north to please keep us in their thoughts as we deal with 2 feet buried in the sand. http://www.ptsdforum.org/c/styles/default/xenforo/smilies/wink.png

    It was below zero here and go figure for the Denver Public School Dumba** to open the schools, though he gave parents the choice to bring kids to school and than the news goes and says how the director says something different than the polls, parents speaking up.

    My kid only went cause he rides the bus and they pick the kids up in front of our apartment buildings. I hate the cold!!
