It was so humid and sticky hot last Sunday. Mcj was busy fixing the aircondition in the room while Jens and I were bonding in the lounge. He went to sleep for almost two hours in the afternoon so I had some ME time. I read a book.

I finished cooking dinner by 5PM and decided to hang out with Mcj while he was doing his thingie. We were told that there is a storm coming but I just brushed it off, not really expecting a big one. Then Mcj all of a sudden, won’t let us come out in the backyard. He said, the cloud is greenish and hail most probably is coming. Not long after, rain with gusty wind started. Then the power went off.

It was a very big storm. We ate dinner with only a torch giving us light and what’s left of the daylight. It was sort of fun, albeit the condition outside. The power was not restored until the next morning so we went to sleep early.

When the eye of the storm passed, Mcj inspected around the property and found some louvers broken, rooves blown away, etc. That and the bamboo blinds in the patio were swept away.

I am thankful that nothing bad happened to us. Some areas of Queensland were severely affected, it’s just horrifying.

Jens is staying home until the day care’s facility is restored, which was damaged when the tree fell down on one of the electricity posts.

Queensland was declared a calamity zone. And it just happened overnight – even shorter than that.



Life in a home with gluten-free diet, preventing Diabetes 2 and trying to be lactose-free. And a little bit fussy child. It sounds difficult and complicated but not really. It's been roughly ten years on - we have a lot of practice.
