It is raining cats and dogs here, has been all night. I have debris from the damn gum tree on my fence and patio. The wind is getting close to cyclonic. The electronic gates refuse to open into the complex.....brrrr. What a climate of wild extremes we have here.
Before the rains came I took a photo of a stunning cactus flower that bloomed in one of my pots. I dont know the name of it but the ants must like the nectar because they were all over it.
The branches that are coming down from the gum tree at this stage are only small, but gum trees are notorious for dropping larger ones and also falling over so keeping my fingers crossed that the storm passes before that happens.
|Just as well there did not come down on the roof|
|This is taken through the window with the rain distorting the pic.|
|This is the offending gate that has us locked in. There is no battery backup on it which needs to be fixed.|
The people who have just moved into the front flat have visitors for the weekend and one of them has his car parked inside the fence behind their garage so hope he does not want to leave to go home any time soon. None of the tenants will be able to get out to go to work on Tuesday either. There is a small gate to get out of provided the keys work in that which they often don't.
At a time like this I am glad I only have my own two feet to rely on.
Off to the front lounge room to watch some tv. If only this weather could go to where the bushfires are down south.
Hope everyone is having a nice and safe weekend.
