We are finally back in our house, one week after Yasi ripped through North Queensland. Yasi hit Tully and Cardwell as a catagory 5 cyclone, but the sheer size of it resulted in Townsville receiving winds of a category 3. We evacuated our old Queenslander and sheltered at my Mums.
Eulalie and I have had a pretty bad week because of the disruption. I've been stressed and I'm sure she can sense it. There is something about the energy after the cyclone - everything has been stirred up and feels displaced. Since coming home, she seems to be a bit more settled, or at least I do.
These are some pictures of our street when we returned. The city is covered in fallen trees and branches, but structurally sound. Lucky us. Now for the clean up.
