    There is currently a massive storm passing through south australia. It has wiped out power supply for an area bigger than Texas. There is flooding and disaster widespread. One of the biggest storms ever having hurrican like power.

    This where our friend CowboyNQ. resides. Just letting you all know here at the forum.

    Hoping all is okay with you Paul. Thinking of you.

    Thanks Ray, alive and well mate.

    However there is a state wide power outage that we're being told won't be resolved until 4am.

    What a great excuse to have a bash on the piano. Not much else to do!

    Glad to hear you're okay. :)
    We heard that the storm was catastrophic! I have seen pictures of some nasty damage but no reports of death or injury so far so that is good!
    It's heading toward us in Victoria now but believe it will fizzle out before it impacts on me. :rolleyes:
    Enjoy you piano by candle light.

    Power outages are the reason I keep two uninterruptable power supplies.

    I can record a masterpiece in ANY weather :D :D :D

    Gary :)

    PS... BTW All, I'm now moved into my new apartment and up to my adenoids in bins and boxes.

    Pray to whatever Spaghetti Monsters you worship that I survive the gauntlet ;)

    Part of the reason for our power outages. Still pretty rugged here but luckily we've not been impacted too heavily at our place. Another outage today but it was quickly resolved.

    Thanks all for your kind thoughts.

    Ray - I'm heading to Melbourne tomorrow - hopefully not bringing too much of this weather with me.

    Gary - happy you're in your new place mate.

    Cheers!
