Well, by now, everyone must have seen pics and news reports about Australia's major flooding. In size it's larger then all of Germany or larger then Texas & California combined. It's about to hit the 3rd largest city, Brisbane, with a population of over 2 Million citizens. I predict in will only be days, that us North Americans, among Europeans, will be asked for help & aid, which I find we should totally support. I do follow currencies, and just in the last couple of days, the Aussie Dollar has fallen 5 cents, and is now below ours, because the cost of this disaster is going to be enormous ! (already estimated at 16 Billion and counting). My heart and sympathy goes out to all of those effected downunder !
