first of all hope everyone is going okay after that SPECTACULAR low we just got through!!!!! Because I am so close to the coast now, the sound of the sea in between the 45 knot wind was quite something. I honestly thought our windows were going to get blown in. Yesterday I went and stood on the beach for a while it was amazing the force of nature...it was exhilarating I have used every towel I own as rain came in under the front door and rain also was pouring down the bedroom window into the shag carpet (..yup you read correctly ) therecwas also a new water feature downstairs in the garage that will be rotting some bearer boards in the long term. Ha the letter box (with mt pet red back) got snapped of and blown around. The wind gusts even moved the huge BBQ on our patio. All the furniture got blown around and the cushions are likely riding the Oxley as I write But life and limb are intact...but funnily I hear no birds at all. Well time to start washing towels and collecting furniture from around the back yard. Stay safe everyone not safe to ride up here with all the leaf litter and branches everywhere.
