Elemental

Oh my!

Perth is recovering from a horric storm that caused over $100 million worth of damage. Yikes.

It hit yesterday at 4pm. The sun suddenly disappeared, the sky darkened to a dull grey and then it started hailing. Golf ball-size hail stones. That break windows in houses and windshields on cars, not to mention dent cars throughout the city. We fared pretty well (just some minor flooding). The aftermath in the form of news/photos is shocking though. Mudslides, roads turned to rivers, trees uprooted, cars dented and glass broken, and of course the beauty of the red red sunset after the chaos of the storm.

Here's hoping everyone in Perth fared okay in that crazy mother of a storm.


On a more optimistic tone, here's some pics from the (lazy and lovely) weekend...

haha Anika, unfortunately I don’t have a blog ( I don’t know why, I spend enough time on them!) but I am an avid reader of yours!

I actually recognised Stuart first then had an attack of shyness. Next time I will say hi, no more lurking for me!

Your boots are uber cool...almost Sam Edelman Zoe, but I like yours better!

I love storms, we never get enough of them here. But I like the storms that cause the lights to go out NOT cause millions in damages, eek!
