    G'day from Newcastle all. We just got power back on here this afternoon after it was off for about 37 hours. Power outage and missing most of the side of my shed is only problem we had at our place.

    Pray for all those affected by this in one way or another, because there are going to be plenty of them. Some suburbs still flooded.

    God bless all

    Hey thanks BG :)

    Yeah, fibro sheets made a bit of noise coming off my shed at 2am, but if that's the worst we get we've done well.

    Just had news on, a batch of shops in city itself and some suburbs have to write-off all their stock, cars abandoned on roads left right & centre...Around about 20-30cm of rain was the average over Friday night.

    The worst of the weather is over, now comes the cleaning up for a lot of people.

    But speaking of cleaning up....better not use the news links in this thread for a while. News site has an inappropriate thumbnail for an inappropriate video story at the moment...Sad when even news sites aren't safe...
