My email would not send. Dd down in your city was outside when the storms hit.The dogs were going nuts so she was trying to calm them when about 10 foot away next to the clothesline the lightening hit. She lost all hearing and sight for a while. Dogs so nuts and while she was trying to find her way back inside she got scratched. She got hearing and ok sight back aften a while but no power to the house. Hope you missed this. We got the winds and some storm, sattelite for cable tv crashed so going to sleep early. Hope tomorrow is better. Using 3G to send this.

Yes she sounded shaken up. I would be too. We are on the map to be hit today. Have not looked out yet but last night the back fence was leaning over. Sigh. Guess I will have to go talk to the neighbours and see what they want to do about it. With my luck it will be right down today and that means problems with the dog.

She was very lucky. Yes, much of it is said to be heading this way, so going to be an interesting day. We are getting dust storms with it so unfortunately the pool is turning a not so great shade of green and we are out of salt, and there is no way I am going to go buy and carry those bags. Have not heard if DD has power back on or not. Guess I should get off here for now and go check for damage. Be back in a while.

I oh so miss those southerly busters! Loved the way they cool things down for sleep. Going to be a warm one today.

Just heard from DD still no power and her mobile/cell phone was dead but somehow they got the garage door open so she could plug it in the car to call. Makes you realise how much you depend on electricity. Hope her fridge stays cold and it gets fixed soon.

I know you guys could use the rain but would be nice if it was just a gentle rain. Glad to hear things aren't to bad, stay safe!

How was the storm Suzi, did the fence get blown over or still leaning?
