Wednesday, September 23

Now here’s an exciting day for you . . . Mom and I are spending 11 hours at the Sydney airport!!!!  I called Sparky and told him that AU may be sinking into the ocean . . . because Sydney had a dust storm, Queensland is having a heat wave which increases the risk for bush fires, Adelaide had hail stones the size of golf balls, and Melbourne, our destination, had an earthquake SE of the city.  So, what did we do with our time?  I wrote this blog and caught up on Tuesday’s blog.  We got to the airport at 11am and our 1pm flight was cancelled and we’re going out on a 10:10 flight (maybe).
