The Rain Came Down!

Well you would probably have to living under a rock if you didn't realise that the Central coast and Hunter region were hit with a massive storm over the weekend ! We are talking 100 km winds and also the yearly rainful in just two days. It was unbelievable.

We were so lucky, houses in our street wern't as lucky, plenty flooded and plenty without power. We were also very very lucky to get our kids out of school at about 2.30pm, by 3pm you couldn't get to them and plenty of them had to stay the night :(

But life goes on and as everyone starts to assess the damage and tidy up the sun is shining today :) The kids are back at school and life just keeps going. I am so saddened by the families who have lost loved ones in this tradgedy, I can't even imagine how they must be feeling.

I will leave you with photo's in and around our streets, the blue fence is Livinia's preschool and yes that is the LAKE right up to their door !

I uploaded my photo's via photobucket for the first time, can't say I like how it has made each a new post - but can't be bothered fiddling now!

Stay safe,

Love Lisa

OMGoodness - I can't believe Livinia's pre-school!!! Glad you guys got through safely. We lost power for about a day and a half - but thankfully no major flooding apart from our street (and footpaths!)
