We are back and survived

Hi everyone, just a quickie.  We are are all well including my family and friends that live in Cairns and Gordonvale.   We were so extremely lucky that the cyclone headed south and we were on the edge.  Still a very strong edge.  More detail later.  It was scary.  House no damage.  Branches and leaves everywhere.  Have been cleaning up for last three days but that is what you get for having a big yard.  No power until today at 2 1/2 days.  Landline and mobile went out this morning but back on again around 2.30pm.  Only lost them this wonderful to have a little contact.  Must go and do some more work.  Back to normal Monday I am sure.  :-)  So sorry for everyone just an hour south of us.....devastating.


  1. Merry I am so very glad to hear all is ok - we had hoped that was the case - but knowing where you live and the conditions of the highway was worried about trees near your house... glad all is good!!

  2. Great to hear you are all OK.A very sad situation for so many people up there.It will take a long time to get things back to normal.Just hope another one doesn't come along over the next couple of months.
