Are you able to see the horizontal tree trunk within the background That is the useless tree that got here down within the storm. There is a kookaburra sitting on the chicken run fence enjoying the rain and waiting for an unsuspecting lizard or snake to scamper by.
After 20 months of drought, it was wonderful seeing this rainwater pooling up within the yard.
It has been fairly a night time right here. The rain depression, which was the remnants of TC Debbie, introduced an unimaginable amount of rain over the past 36 hours and wind for the past 12 hours. In our city we had 9 inches/230mm of rain which has resulted in flash flooding and main floods further down the coast. We have a tree down within the yard and the power lines came down out the front at about 4pm yesterday. It is still down but we haven’t lost power. I guess we’re on an extended record of issues to be dealt with by Energex later in the day. Our phones and internet had been out over night. The phones are back now but the internet is still down. I’m using the hotspot on my phone to make this submit. The good news is that we and our household are fine. I think Hanno and i can deal with the tree in the backyard and will tackle that later this morning. If it is too much for us we’ll ask our family for assist. Gracie liked the rain. She ran around within the backyard getting soaked to the skin and after i let her inside, even after I towelled her dry, it took hours for her hair to dry out properly.
This was taken about 2pm yesterday afternoon.
And right in the middle of this photo, with the rain pouring down, is a sulphur-crested cockatoo feasting on our pecans. He was joined by a pal later and the 2 of them stuffed up on nuts before they flew off.
I hoping everyone up north and down in the flooded areas in NSW are coping. It will be a big job cleaning up however so long as we’re all unharmed, we can get on with the clean up.
I apologise for having to spend a lot time on this template however the good news is that I’m very happy with this new one. I’ve tested it using the desktop, laptop, telephone and pill and it looks like it is working properly on all of them. I still have just a few issues to examine and alter, I want to tweak the colours, but the bulk of the work is done and you should be able to learn every thing whereas I work on finalising the smaller issues. Thanks to your persistence.
Will probably be why wrap hair a busy day right here with the clear up outdoors and baking Jamie’s birthday cake. His birthday get together is tomorrow and I am going to rest on Sunday. And that leaves time for me to get back into the swing of things here and write a, hopefully, fascinating submit for you on Monday. Keep tuned, mates.
