It never rains…

And it didn’t in Tasmania for an entire week whilst I was there. Perfect weather, magnificent scenery and plenty of photographs that I will begin to post with the tale of the places I visited as I do so.

But it does pour. Returning to work on Monday we were the victims of an enormous downpour of rain and flash flooding that poured in through the doors and windows of the stadium. I’ve only just gotten the computers back on line and haven’t had time yet to catch up with anyone’s blogs to find out what’s been happening since I’ve been away. Hopefully I will get the chance to do that over the next few days.

Here are a couple of photos of our mini disaster as well as the final episode in Movember for this year.

Thanks to everyone who commented on the last post.

Finally Movember and I should report that we are now all clean shaven once again.

    Oh dear. I assume the carpet is carpetted… troublesome. But I often read about the drought in Australia, so rain is probably a good thing.
    Looking forward to your travel pixs.

    Hope all has settled down a bit for you by now Laurie and that there is not too much damage to the stadium. Oh, and I did see you interviewed on the news. You came across really well.
    I look forward to the pics on Tassie also. Such a beautiful place. I haven’t been there for years and years.
    Take care

    Jen – thanks for the comments about the news item. Bit hard to know how you come across and it’s daunting standing talking to a camera.

    Gypsy – we’re cleaned up and ready for competition to resume tonight. Funny I’ve had people talk about it being a disaster but it’s not really, more of a minor setback. Disaster is the recent floods in Bangladesh where 3000 people died.

    Ooh, we had this happen once at our offices several years ago – what a mess! We had people sloshing around trying to get computer equipment unplugged and off the floor as the water began to pour in, and mold crawling up our walls in closets in the weeks to come. I don’t envy you that clean up one bit!

    Clean up has gone well. We recommenced competition last night and it’s looking like the floors have survived the worst of it. Thank you all for commenting.

    Wow, Loz. I am just catching up on my reading, so I had not seen this. I am sorry about the flood. I hope things are better now.
