Skywatch Friday: Samoa and Fiji cyclone

The sky is beautiful in Auckland, New Zealand. But for many occupants who have relatives in Samoa and Fiji, they are weary and watching the sky. At least three people, two of them reportedly children, have already been killed by tropical cyclone Evan, which has brought widespread flooding, blocked roads, destroyed buildings and forced evacuations across Samoa. The category three tropical cyclone currently lashing Samoa could develop into a category five monster by the time it reaches Fiji. I am thinking of them because I have students and friends from these Pacific Islands.

This is such a serene and beautiful scene. A lovely shot. I thought of you tonight as I was posting my little watercolors. Today was such a tragedy here in the US. Only a mom who has lost a child can truly comprehend the grief these parents feel. genie

There is anxiety and trouble in many parts of the world. We should be grateful for what peace we are enjoying.
