I am back! Most of you will be aware of the shocking weather on Sunday. We lost power at 1.00pm and had a neighbours tree fall and land in our back yard. Happy dance because the tree only took out the fence, insurance company has been great and will be out to assess on Monday.
However since Sunday we have been without power. Earlier this year we decided to get a generator, best thing we ever did. We had some light and the TV, nothing else. We rang regularly to get updates on the outage, each time they would change the expected return of power for our area. Rang again this arvo and was told it was only The Patch out so on the phone again and waited for a real person. There were in fact still houses out in Emerald .... l just needed reassurance that we hadn't been overlooked.
Came back on at 6.00pm, we are happy! All our fridge stuff has been binned. The dishwasher and the washing machine are both going, the heater is on. Yay!!!!
Thanks to my lovely friends who have been in touch to see if we needed any help or a place to stay warm. Love you guys.
