    Our power went out around 4pm on Sunday (it’s 7.45am on Monday now for the non-Aus!). There’s not much natural light in our place due to the trees so it’s been pretty much dark inside since 5pm. My son is loving the candles and torchlight! At least the torrential rain has stopped for now, and the trees are still standing.
    It could be a lot worse, there’s a tropical cyclone hitting WA...
    And a cyclone hitting new Caledonia on the eastern side.

    egads!  What next?  Be safe, Aussie friends!

    This place just cannot catch a break at the moment! Although, our area hasn't been hit that hard compared to a lot of other places.
    I hope you're safe @rhanishane

    Yes all good here thank you. Safe to say the drought has broken where I am 🙌

    one extreme to the next.. currently copping weather from a cyclone off the east coast now and I'm on the midcoast. At least my yard is no longer dirt 😳

  • Fantastic! So glad you all are getting some respite from the smoke and relief from the drought as well.

    It's been 6 months of hell and unfortunately pretty much every green patch on this map of NSW has already burnt through since September last year with the remaining fires to the south all now contained. Cyclone uesi is now a Low pressure system hugging our east coast causing more flooding and inundation but nature is bouncing back. The wildlife however has taken a massive hit and ecosystems may change because of it.

  • So devastating!!  I can hardly fathom the enormity of the destruction...so sorry...peace and love to you...

    This is my home and popular Australian vet and tv series Dr. Harry. These are the koalas from my hometown area rescued after the devastating fires here
