Just thought I would let everyone know that, yes I was in the middle of Ex-Tropical Cyclone Oswald.
The mountain was hit fairly hard, but my little section emerged relatively unscathed. A couple of trees down in my yard, but well away from the house, and a crack in my water tank has seen me as one of the lucky ones. All I can say is that I am glad that it was an ex-cyclone.
I’m writing from work as I’ve been without power for three days and it looks like it will take another two at least to get reconnected, but I am one of 250,000 so at least I’m not alone. Back to normal soon, hopefully.
