A White Christmas in the Land of Oz?
Hi all,I am so sorry I did not get to visit yesterday afternoon,I had another hectic day.I had an appointment in the morning,stood in a lay by line for 2 hours(they were missing some of my parcel,though all sorted now) and had to do the groceries.My daughter had also organised to go to the movies with a friend and her mum,but I found out that her mum was no longer able to take them,I ended up taking them so they wouldn't miss out.By the time I got home about 9.30pm I was totally exhausted.

Anyway I had just got home from the gym at around 1.50pm and not 10 minutes later,we had this massive storm.It was so dark,I had to have the lights on inside.The photos are of our front yard,I was holding the door open to get these,I ended up having to run my arm under warm water as the ice was starting to freeze my arm.It was also very dark outside,but I have used the flash to get a better picture.My 4 year old's trampoline was filled with ice,as was the sun shade on top of the trampoline and my gosh look at it all at the front door.My car is parked under a carport and between the house and garage,so it is fairly well covered,but the very strong winds that came with this storm still managed to carry some ice onto the windscreen of my car.I have heard quite a few sirens since this storm and that does worry me,I do hope that no one has been badly injured.Well,I think I need to do some blog hopping,but first I will draw the winner of my Blue Butterfly Stamps mini candy.Thanks for stopping by.

WOW, Lots of bad weather on the east coast!

My aunty called last night from Newcastle and said it was pouring and hailing too, even had a blackout for a bit.

I just woke up at midnight to the sound of thunder and heavy rain and wind outside, no hail tho!

So looks like its travelled!

Just Hope theres no damage!!!!

Wow! What great photos!!! But, not a very nice storm...we saw a bit of it up our way, but it didnt last long. The weather is pretty weird at the moment isnt it!

It is certainly a C-R-A-Z-Y Summer downunder isn't it - hope everyone stays safe and sound with whatever else Mother Nature throws our way!

What an amazing day it was Cheryl. My bestie 9who usually lives in Cranebrook) and I were in Parramatta when the hail hit and we were so v v glad we were inside. it was truely a massive freak of nature and seeing the carnage on the news that night was amazing. The pics will definitely be a record for years to come. We have ones fm a supercell that hit here a couple of years ago on Father's day. People were boogie boarding in the street on all that hail that had fallen!!! Thankfully these episodes are few and far between and I am glad that you and ur family are all OK!!! ooxx
