i had a slight interruption to my sewing (click on the photos to make them bigger)....
soon after lunch the power went off, i checked the switch box (all ok) so i assumed it was a tree down or a fire that had interrupted the power. then i heard a chainsaw and looked out my front window to see a police officer directing traffic. well, sticky-beak that i am, i had to head out to the street to see what was happening (and yes i took my camera with me!!)
turns out that the wind had blown down a tree, which covered the road and the SES (state emergency services) were working hard to clear the road. about an hour later we had power again, a blessing on this HOT day.
now, back to sewing
