Early last week a weather forecaster talked about a ‘weather incident’ heading to South East Queensland and Northern NSW. Translated (with hindsight) this meant torrential rains, gale force winds, floods, trees down, roads washed away, electricity, phone and in some places water cut off.
Fortunately where we live is not affected by flooding and we managed to keep electricity and phone connected – although I was sure on Thursday night we would lose electricity with several episodes of power flicking.
The sun came out on Friday only to be replaced by storms, gale winds and rain until late last night. the sun has been coming through for most of today.
