The tail end of a cyclone passed close by the other day. Besides some alarming winds we didn’t really suffer too much here in Brunswick; no power shortages and no buildings collapsing. Which, when you think about the building practices sometimes employed in these parts in past decades, has to be some sort of miracle!
Despite winds up to 130kmh Oma and Opa persisted outdoors, placing redgum sleepers in my new vegie patch and cleaning the windows to the Bungalow Deluxe! We did get a fair dumping of that strange orange dust from the west which blanketed the front of the house and left me with a stuffy nose for a day or two but did make for quite a fetching sunset in an armageddon-sort-of-way!.
