Big Blow In Busselton

The storm I mentioned last night struck Busselton at about 6.30 this morning. Apparently a small "tornado" or "cock-eyed Bob" cut a path through parts of West Busselton, near Dolphin Rd and the highway. Lots of houses were damaged but not extensively, mainly fences trees and a few roofs. It was about 5km from our place so we weren't affected but some friends from church were. Their neighbours rang them to say you'd better come back from Perth to deal with the damage. Their fence was knocked down and their outdoor setting was strewn all over the yard, with the glass table shattering like a windscreen as it smashed into the fence.
While the damage could have been a lot worse, and no-one was hurt, I'm glad we weren't hit by the storm.

Sport Update:
The kids won their soccer game this morning. It was 1-1 at half time and I had to remind them about several aspects of the game that they were neglecting! It's very rare that I go crook at them but they needed some "encouragement" to get back on track. It must have worked because they came out and scored 6 goals in the 2nd half and won 7-1. Sport Boy played goalie in the first half and gave away a penalty for bringing a kid down as he dived on the ball! He redeemed himself in the second half by scoring two goals and very nearly heading a third.

This afternoon was spent garage saling, then installing the purchased goods, a king size single bed in Favourite daughter's room (She's been sleeping on a mattress on the floor) and a CD player in The Hair's room to go with the speakers and amplifier I bought at Nick's auction last week. The bed and mattress cost me $130 and the CD player $2!! I love a bargain!!

We're about to go to church then it will be home to watch the footy, the Cats and the Blues.
