The rain built in from the north and by 10 am we were all looking out the window and speculating what time the road past Nursing Science would go under (the main way out). It was dark and the rain got to the point it looked like snow, a complete white out. Boab came and rescued me and my bike around 3:30 pm, the creek at Nursing Science was just cresting the road.
So now we are snug and secure in a closed up house while the rain pelts down. We are cold, the temperature has fallen to 20 celcius. I am not used to having the french doors closed and it is odd, the acoustics are weird. The rain is loud on the iron roof.
Today is the first day of my new diet. I am as slim as I want to be, but my wretched cholesterol has crept up to near 7 again, despite my fantastic physical condition. I am just gutted. I can't cut fat like I used to, I need fat to perform, so I have read up on diets for athletes. The Australian Institute of Sport site has some excellent advice. So I am cutting the red meat, killing off some bad habits and giving up cheese, and that really hurts. We'll see how I go over the next 6 months. Bummer!

This week is looking grim as we have a big tropical low and flooding.
