"Tis a blackout........

The whole state is on a weather alert today and tomorrow, for extreme weather conditions. This morning was the calm before the storm, and gradually the winds have increased and now it is raining. I  am not sure how bad it will get, and maybe the worst will be further north of here??
About an hour ago, the power went out. My desktop computer went off, Max is off, the lights are out, and even the cordless phones don't work. I do have a laptop and there is 70% battery left. My mobile phone is down to 70% also. It seems to whole state is out of power. Thankfully I don't need to go out anywhere, and I shall stay warm because I have my wood heater. I will have something to eat tonight, because there is cooked chicken in the fridge that I can make a sandwich with. But no cuppa to go with it. Wondering if I might put a saucepan of water on the wood heater to boil??

You can see in the photo that it is very dark in my room, and gloomy outside. 

 But, it does remind you of how reliant we are on the power, for almost everything we do. Business' can't operate without power, and whole country is crippled. Scary thought.

So without further ado, I am switching off, and heading to the recliner to put my feet up by the wood fire, (with a saucepan of water on top), and maybe contemplate life or something profound like that!!??

Hope everyone stays safe in this weather, especially those in the midst of it.

Blessings, From Jude

Frustrating, you cannot read a book in the dark! Hope they got the power back on for you today. I can see the rain coming on the radar again today, but we just had normal rain last night, definitely not a storm here. Hopefully not too much damage in Adelaide Hills.
