Just a quick post to thank everyone who has been sending their thoughts and prayers our way, we are all safe and came thru Yasi with minimal damage to our property and none to ourselves or our pets. A tree landed on a power line that is connected to the house so we have no power and it may take weeks for that to be restored. Thankfully we have the loan of a small generator (one of my angels over zealously tightened a bolt on our generator and snapped it, this was of course discovered in the mad dash of the clean up before Yasi arrived...handy! ) one of Billy's friends is making us a new bolt and then we should be able to run the hot water service and if I unplug everything else I should be able to use the washing machine!! Who would of thought I would be excited about that!
So for now service is limited so I will have to make trips to the golden arches to charge my phone, and no power means no Internet :-(. I will be back to normal blogging as soon as the power is back.
Thank you again to everyone who left such kind messages, it really helped :-)
I did some crochet while we waited for Yasi in the dark, it gave me a new insight into what it was like to craft by the light of a candle...how did they produce such exquisite needlework????
