OMG, I have missed you! Well you, my readers and you, the sweet internet!
I would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who left comments, sent emails, tweets etc. I really appreciate you thinking of me and my family.
Well, Cyclone Yasi has passed, and I am pleased to say Townsville did not fair too badly. Structural damage to buildings was minimal, but so many trees uprooted. Unfortunately the city (I am sure it is big enough to qualify the name city), lost power and there was also damage to water mains. My power has only just come on... 50 hours without it in a tropical climate... needless to say I/we were starting to smell :)
Needless to say all the food in my fridge and freezer had to be binned :(
Here are a couple of pictures.
This is the new shed at a local school.
What used to be a footpath and someone's fence!
Tree that fell on the neighbours car (blue plastic was put on after as the back window and boot where all smashed).
Hopefully I will be back tomorrow with a card. Take care.
