So far so good for us!!!

 So far so Good!!  For us at least.  Not so good further north but the Queensland cyclone did cross the coast in a not too populated area thank goodness.  It is still going on so we don't know how everyone fared as yet. There were two cyclones active at the same time. The other one impacted the Northern Territory. It was a category 4 and we are still waiting to hear how people fared there as well.
We had a lot of wind and rain overnight but woke at 5am to VERY calm conditions and a break in the rain. Mum belted Dad over the head and said "get up ..... it's NOT RAINING!!  There's NO WIND!!  We're going to the BEACH".  Very dramatic my Mum. Off we went. It was fantastic.  There's two creeks at the beach that aren't  usually there but other than that no problems.  The only people there were dog people so I had a great time.  We didn't get blown away. We didn't even get wet. How good was that??


Pretty, aye?? 

Lots of good sniffin'

Crikey ..... would this be ok for Frankie's pee stop photo for the marathon.

Not our usual blue skies, aye??

Lots of pumice stone!  AND an apple core.  I ate it.
When we got back home it started raining again and it is supposed to get worse as the cyclone travels closer to us but it will  weaken as it travels over land and will finally turn into just a rain depression so we will be safe.  The river is quite high but it hasn't gone over our jetty yet. That might still happen but that's no problem. We had 6 inches of rain overnight and a lot of roads are closed but it's HOT so I think we are better off than a lot of you blokes with high winds, sleet and snow and COLD, aye??
A big thankyou to everyone for worrying about us. I sure hope everyone further north stays safe.  

Our river this morning. It's high but it's been higher.

The jetty next door goes under before ours and it's still ok.

Our jetty is still high and dry, aye??
One bad thing happened at the little girls house. Their Dad tripped over something HE left lying around and fell heavily on his arm. They are at the hospital now having it ex-rayed as he was in quite a lot of pain last night.  Mum couldn't get there to look after the girls because of the road closures so they all had to go.  I feel sorry for the hospital. Those girls will wreck it.

Wanna run ..... Love Charlie.

pee-ess!!!  It's broken ..... he's getting a cast put on it NOW!!!!!  Mum can't wait to sign it.

    1. We're ok but others weren't so lucky. It was a bad cyclone but no-one was killed. Buildings can be fixed. It will take a while but it'll get done. Everyone pulls together in times like this.

    Speedy recovery to the Daddy with the broken arm.

  8. Broken.....well, that's a pain--in more ways than one!

    We've been watching the twin cyclone show all day. We did wonder about you. Glad it's only rain and not flooding rain....yet. Getting out for a while to run on the beach is a huge BONUS! Keep dry.

    1. It was nowhere near as bad as the media was telling us it would be. It was very bad for those further north but not for us. Just lots of rain. It passed over our house today at 7am. A bit of wind but not too bad. Lots of rain and road closures etc. but we didn't have water on our property this time.

    1. Crikey Zoe ...... I don't know if Miss G. stripped at the hospital but I saw her today and she had her dress on back to front and her little boobies were showing. She went to the shops like that. Mum tried to take it off and put it on properly but she wouldn't have a bar of it.

  19. First thing this morning we heard about the big wind coming your way and thought about you and hoped you were all safe and well, ....I wanted to tell you last night at our supper table MACEY was eating pancakes after dance and we were telling her more about YOU and that PIG and the said story of the CHICKEN and all about your little GIRLS. She laughed a lot. We are glad no one at our house has pigs just pugs. Although our big sister KODY had a potbellied pig at my moms house when she was growing up, his name was TED and he bossed her around all the time.

    We are sorry to hear about DAD are you sureeeeee that little girl didn't do it???? The one you were worried about....lol.......stella rose and momma

    1. Crikey Stella Rose and Momma ..... Thankyou so much for letting Mum and I know how you told Macey about our family. We think of her all the time and to think that we have helped her in some little way makes us feel so good. She would so love our little girls and the pig and the chickens. We do wish the Doctors would find out what is going on with her and make her all better. You've sure been having a bad time at your house lately. I think for once the little girls were innocent but you never know with our little psychopath. She's a very different little girl that one.

  20. We're very glad you and your family fared well in the big storm! Hooray!

    So sorry for Dad's broken arm. Hope he feels better soon!

    Our science geek humans would love to have a look around on the beach for things that might have washed up after the storm. Ghostwriter remembers being a kid and going to the beach on Lake Ontario during the off season and finding all kinds of interesting things.

    1. There's always something interesting on beaches, aye?? There's a lot of pumice on our beach at the moment. Apparently from a volcano all the way over in New Zealand.

  21. Charlie I hope that cyclone (why that thingy has the same name like our hoover?) disappears without damage...
    I feel so sorry for the dad of the little girls.... I hope he got some meds what cover the pains and it heals up quickly.... send a big hug from our house of broken arms to yours...

    1. I'll send that big hug to the girls Dad Easy. It's a bad break but I don't think it's as bad as your Mom's. He has to wait until the swelling goes down before they will make a decision on whether or not to operate so it's a bit of a wait and see at the moment.

  22. We are so happy that you came through the storm ok!!

    Now...we hope that the dad of the girls isn't in too much pain and heals up quickly!!

  33. Sounds like the storm wasn't bad for you at all. Definitely better than this Siberian Express cold blast we are currently experiencing.
