Did you get any of the rain, last night? We missed out, but a mate near Marburg got a good drop.

Just a light sprinkle here..... and the wind has arrived now too.  ;D

Farkles..
https://www.windy.com/?-40.551,150.117,7


Gusts of 143km/h were reported at Mount William in the Grampians National Park – nearly double what is considered ‘gale force’ – while a severe weather warning remains active for the western and central Victorian coasts, Greater Melbourne, Gippsland, and the Mornington Peninsula.
What a night... Mega wind - was waiting for a tornado...

So much Shit down this morning - whole trees uprooted and some even snapped in 1/2

Nobody can get out of Red Hill - every road is blocked, I'd guess others would be same round St Andrews etc.

Tassie Ferry would be like a yo yo

GG would be suffering at his joint...


lots of this one around melb today

We've dodged the trees down but power has been out for a while, they're saying don't expect it back until tomorrow at the earliest. I've got the genny fired up and about 5L of unleaded left...

Yeah, plenty of branches down over here too, but the power's OK.

Found some packaging in our back yard. Address says 10 doors down, and on the other side of the street.

All the bins were out last night. Collection day today..... ::)
