Phew!

Thanks everyone for your kind words and good wishes.

The change came in the evening with calmer and cool winds.

No major dramas during the day around here. Thank goodness! However, I am very saddened to hear that Victoria did not fare well at all. My heart goes out to all the families who lost loved ones. What a tragedy!

This morning we awoke to rain drops (!!!!!) falling on the roof. Oh my goodness, what a wonderful sound! There were not many, but every single one was welcome. They managed to dampen the surface a little bit.

It is much cooler today and what a relief this is! Let's hope Victoria will soon experience a cool and safe change, too!

Thank goodness Veg, we've been listening to the news updates all day and I've been thinking of you! Stay safe (and cool) mate :-)

Thanks so much, Julie. I am extremely grateful that yesterday went without a major disaster over here.
However, I feel terrible that I whined and vented about our day and here is Victoria with this absolute devastation. We saw coverage of Marysville, which we had visited twice to meet up with friends, and there is nothing left of it now. Even worse, lots of lives have been lost. A truly sad day.
