FNSI and Cyclone Watch

Considerable time was spent online last night watching the path of Cyclone Marcia as she came through our region on her way south. Thankfully downgraded to a Cat 1 by then but still plenty of wind and rain.  We measured 105 mm (4") in the gauge this morning but some wouldn't have made it in the gauge with the wind factor. Towns further west of us measured up to 8 inches and lost power while Yeppoon and Rockhampton to our north bore the brunt of it.

So back to my sewing ... I managed to prep and needle turn one more block for 'Natures Journey'. Thank you Wendy for getting us all together for another Friday Night.

This morning called for a drive down to the creek for a look see ...

With the road in the other direction also cut, we'll be staying put for a little bit ... more sewing time.

Weather Update

Tropical Cyclone Marcia - Category 5

She's starting to cross the coast just north of Yeppoon this morning ... watching the updates on TV and Internet ... keep safe everyone. Waiting to see what impact we experience in the pathway south.

Whether the Weather

Whether the weather be fine,
Or whether the weather be not,
Whether the weather be cold,
Or whether the weather be hot,
We'll weather the weather,
Whatever the weather,
Whether we like it or not.

At the end of last year we were out feeding cattle to keep them alive through the drought. Good rains December and January grew the grass and I found myself stuck at flooded creeks driving home from work. Now this is knocking on the door!

Tropical Cyclone Marcia

On the sewing news, I managed another finish earlier this month but just haven't had the time to share. The block was from our groups Christmas swap and our challenge is to make the block into an item by July ... big tick for me ... I'm done!

Also needle turning my way through the February blocks for 'Natures Journey'.

Last Sunday night our area experienced a 5.2 earthquake ... I somehow managed to sleep right through it even with hubby trying to wake me ... thankfully no major damage reported. So now I'm taking my tired body to bed and listen to the wind howling outside ... see what tomorrow brings.
