Cyclone Ului crossed the coast in the early hours of Sunday morning as a category 3 cyclone (hurricane). It caused less damage than predicted, but there is still a lot of damage to be cleared in the coastal towns affected, as well as devastation for farmers who had 'bumper' crops ready for harvest.
My prayers go out to them. Our farmers have had too many lean years.
To all of you who emailed to say you had family members in the Ului path, I pray they did not suffer damage to self or property.
It did not pass through our town, just the very edge swept over us about lunchtime bringing wind and rain. The end of our street has flooded (up to my knees), but the rain now is just a soft trickle.
Thank you for your messages of concern, your prayers, and your enthusiasm for my Ului Table Runner project. I'm so glad I had it to keep me busy while we waited for the cyclone to land and pass.
Here is mine, all finished and on the dining table.
How did you go with yours?
Please email me a photo of your Ului Table Runner, or leave a comment with a link to your blog if you've put a photo there. I'd love to see it.
Right now I am ready for a shower (it's very sticky here with the warm rain), a big mug of cocoa, some toast and Vegemite, and a magazine to browse before I fall asleep.
Sweet dreams dear friends,
