Back (for a moment)

Just letting you know that I am in one piece, the house has all its elements in their original places (although it does have a new leafy motif) and the paddies are all present and correct. There is no power, so no internet connection. I will continue to be quiet until that is fixed. (I'm sending this from a friend's place in Atherton, which has been reconnected to the grid.)

Thanks for all your good wishes. Damage here was minimal compared with places to the south, especially Tully Heads and Hull Heads. These are small coastal towns that no one ever hears about. A bloody awful way to be put on the map.

Back soon.

So glad to hear all is well at your place! Power still out here as well ... and no running water as a result. Minimal damage ... that's true for most of Townsville too. So much luckier than those a little further north.

Good news about TSV. A lucky escape for a lot of us, I think.

So much for a quiet life in the country, eh? Quite relieved to know you and the paddies are accounted for.

Hi Snail, it's good to hear that you and the house and the paddies are all OK. Here's hoping that you get the power back on soon - but I hear that the electricity company is saying maybe WEEKS! Not Good!

Huzzah! The house still stands and the pademelons can return to their loafing about.

Poor ol' Tully - and of all the bitter crazy things, apparently the giant gumboot escaped relatively unscathed.

Hi all

Still without power. It can't be far off. Am staying o'night with friends in Atherton. Hopefully will be back on air full-time within 48 hrs.
