What a storm

Wow, what a weekend we had with such extreme weather conditions....
It`s been many years since I have witnessed this...
It brought back childhood memories when walking home from school getting drenched and frozen to the bone....As soon as you walked into the door it was off with the clothes and into a nice hot bath to thaw out....
My youngest has never seen so much rain which we had in the last couple of days and he definitely couldn`t fathom the fact that I had to walk home from school.....My how much has changed...
I wonder is it safe to say we actually might be on the other side of the drought???...:)
Needless to say not much happened this weekend as one wasn`t game to venture too far from home....
But as always as quick as the storm front hit it is now quite a pleasant day so it`s outside to see what damage has taken place....
Lot`s of broken staues much to my dismay...
Oh well looks like an excuse to me to go out and buy myself some new ones....

  1. Mandy one thing that has not changed with you my friend, is your ability to find lots of reasons to hit the shops.
    Our news coverage gave us pictures of weather in other states. So glad the damage is minimal. We had the winds without the rain for three days. Today is better, but still blowing a little. Not good gardening weather.
    Take care and remember to thanks for the update.

  2. Same up here Mandy, lots more rain than we needed and so sad to see most of it run to the sea. Such a pity we cant collect it eh?! Not much storm damage here, just a little localised flooding. Like you we all stayed close to home for most of the weekend. I guess next weekend will be spent pulling up all the freshly growing weeds.

  4. That is not what you need when you are trying to establish a garden.
