Today was mostly overcast, but the storm seems to have passed us by. Everywhere there were branches down, leaves across footpaths, rain water gutters overflowing. Fortunately the local village at work appeared to be fine and the shopping centre down the road seemed to have just one area where water leaked onto the mall tiles. I went for a coffee at Zaraffas and read the paper. It was full of tributes to Phillip Hughes the cricketer who died on the field after being struck by a ball just below his helmet at a major artery in the back of his neck.
Eli was shaken by the news of the sporting great who died so young. He said no one has died through his sport, which is Thai boxing, Muay Thai. It was just a shock for everyone, I think.
We had lunch time rain and a clearing afternoon. I am preparing for my trip to Gympie and Kingaroy early next week.
