These are the photos I took following Cyclone Yasi's visit on the 2nd February. I am sorry they are so dark, I took them about 10 in the morning but the sky was so dark and gloomy.
Wednesday the 2nd they turned the water off in the afternoon and at 8.30 that night the electricity was turned off. My DH, DS and I spent the evening checking and rechecking the house. Yasi passed over us about 10pm with winds over 200 kilometres an hour and didn't let up until after 4 in the morning. There was definitely no sleeping that night. This is what we found next morning.
We were without town water for 4 days, that I was prepared for. Our electricity was finally turned back on today 11th February at 6pm. 10 days with no power I was not prepared for.
Thank you to everyone for your thoughts and good wishes.
