I think the above emoticons possibly echo the thoughts, feelings and attitude of some of those that have had dealings with ‘Sandy’ over the past few days.

Some could have been casual to begin with
– what are ‘they’ going on about – I’m fine nothing will touch us –
– then apprehensive –
wondering what was in store for them, when and if it did happen
– then very unhappy and sad –
at what did actually transpire when the storm arrived.

Nobody likes disasters
and this certainly is one reputed to be three times the size of Cyclone Yasi
That was the cyclone that hit Queensland early last year

Please keep in your thoughts all those affected by this disaster as it made its way up from the Bahamas and northwards along the east coast of America
Like Australians they say they are ‘tough and resiliant’
but they are also human with human thoughts and feelings

There are some who have already been coming to grips with what has actually happened
There are some who are seeing it for the first time as they begin the massive clean up today

Also keep in your thoughts those who may be affected as this storm moves on across the USA into Canada
People there will have seen the wrath of ‘Sandy’ on TV and will be wondering what is in store for them
Lets hope ‘Sandy’ calms down a bit – but the forecast doesn’t look

Wikipedia has put out a detailed page on
‘Hurricane Sandy’ and the trail of disater she has caused so far
