Well, what a Sunday we've had so far!
The cyclone that was supposed to fade away and not reach us actually kept itself going and hit our town early this morning.
Mr E and Blossom slept through the beginning of Cyclone Ita's arrival over Townsville, but then the wind and rain got way too noisy and we all sat and watched it through the 'walls of large windows' in our home whilst drinking coffee and eating fresh pancakes with maple syrup.
By about midday it had passed by and a clean up for those affected began. Roads were cut off, power was out, homes flooded, and the weirs, creeks, river and waterfalls were in full and abundant flow!
The beach was wild...
...as was the Weir.
Hopefully this cyclone is the last for the season. Winter cannot arrive soon enough...
Thank you for your prayers, everyone. Princess Sophie was the only distressed member of the family, and she's settled quite nicely now the cyclone has passed.
