Australia Day weekend storm

20130128-072946.jpgIt hasn’t stopped raining since Friday. Four of our neighbours now have backyard pools and every water tank’s mast sticks out ramrod straight from their bellies.

We haven’t been able to open our windows, as the wild wind slams the rain in and we went to bed with the loud roaring as our lullaby. If I didn’t know better, I would’ve thought we were by the ocean. I asked the SO to keep the blinds down, as the  gums and palms outside bending against Mother Nature’s forces was very disconcerting.

The news is full of snippets about fallen trees, flooding and damaged homes and businesses.

We’re thankfully safe and staying somewhat dry, praying we don’t lose power.
