Well, after the awful weather of last weekend where we had 250+ mm ( yes that's 10 inches !!) of rain in 2 days we are once again feeling very battered.
The rain depression was the tail end of a cyclone and brought with it very destructive winds as well as lots of rain.
There has been heaps of damage from this wind - especially from fallen trees,
usually gum trees falling on houses.
Of course rain like that also brings floods - not too bad in Brisbane thank heavens.
Thses horses in Bundaberg are being swum to safety.
Northern Queensland has once again born the brunt of the rain and, poor things, they are having huge floods.
For us, it's largely inconvenience of flooded roads, some places have no electricity ( and internet !).
Tonight, a week later and life is just about back to normal then,
at 10:00pm, a storm warning just came through on my phone.
Here we go again!!!!
PS. especially For Foody
The term "ocker" is used both as a noun and adjective for an Australian who speaks and acts in an uncultured manner, using a broad Australian accent (or Strine). The typical ocker is "usually found in a blue singlet and rubber thongs with a tinnie in his hand propping up a bar".
