FYI

THaNK YoU... to all my wonderful friends for sending their CoNgraTs on our new arrival.

And just to let everyone know... considering this area has been battered by a horrendous storm...
YES we are OK... actually we are safe & sound & still have power. My son & dil (with their new baby) are fine as well... they have power & haven't suffered any damage to their home or property. However our poor dd & sil have NO power and have substantial water damage in their new home. Baby Cooper is only 8 weeks old so dd and her little ones have spent the last few days here in the dry & warmth.
Mobile phone service is hit & miss around here too.

We are a few of the lucky ones... as some poor families have lost loved ones... or homes and possessions... but I really appreciate your concern.

The rain was sooo heavy at times & with winds gusts that shook our house... I thought the roof tiles would come off... & at one stage I looked out across the road & the rain actually blew sideways.
There are trees down everywhere... boats have been overturned & have washed up on the lakes edge in several locations... most suburbs have NO power... all schools have been closed for 2 days... & emergency services are working 24 hours a day. Fingers crossed that the weather gods will play nice and move this storm out to sea. I just wish I could save some water for the areas in this country that still need rain... as we've had our share AND theirs too. Take care  xox
