we are all connected, and cut off...

Hey thanks to everyone who has been reading our stories, including those people in Brazil, Latvia, Russia, Indonesia, Germany, USA, the UK, Albania and Guyana, and the 500 or so of hits in Australia. It makes the world seem so interlinked when people from all those amazing countries could be reading about our Simpson Desert. We have a week to go but have been rained in. The roads are all currently cut off, we can't get any mail, or of course leave the house paddock. Its cold too. It's dropped from 45 degrees to 25 degrees, and we all had to come inside this morning as we were too cold to stay out! I am wondering how we'll go back in Tasmania. Unfortunately the airstrip is also innaccessible, and Zavier the baby had a bad fall yesterday. It sure made our hearts drop as we knew it was bad and the rain came thundered down, cutting us off from help. His eyes were rolled back in his head and his body shut down momentarily. His cries were gasping. Everything is OK now. Thank goodness we could call the Flying Doctors, who described the effect and said there were no long term effects and he should be fine.
