Had to Ring the SES tonight - window upstairs smashed in from strong winds. 4 very helpful, friendly, damn fantastic guys came out and spent about an hour working on covering up the big hole where the window used to be. Will get it repaired properly in the morning, but they've fixed it so that minimal wind and rain can get in. It's the first time I've ever had to call on the SES for help. Bloody fantastic service. Totally blows me away (pun intended) that folk like these go out of their way to help folk like myself. Will be throwing the service a donation tomorrow. I hope everyone else is doing okay with the weather conditions atm. SES guys were saying the SES in Sth Eastern suburbs has been pretty busy as with areas around Bairnsdale who are experiencing floods atm. The wind seems to have settled a bit here - nowhere near as strong as it was this afternoon. HOly hell it was windy!!!!
