I was glad to be in the van, because everyone is rattled and rubber necking and this is no place to be on your bike. My friends street:
The house next door. Holes punched through windows and walls. What sort of force punches a round hole in glass without shattering the whole window? I shudder to think.
This was a leafy suburb, and even in today's overcast it was so stark and empty
Many roofs torn off, but a few houses lost it all but a few internal walls. How nobody was killed, it is a miracle
So there is random fate. I live so close, and all that happened was a loss of power for a day. The wet season is nearly over for another year, and I think we are all glad to see it go. I am optimistically scrubbing off mold like it is over for another year. Some people have a whole lot more to do to put this wet season behind them.
