    how is everyone with this rain

    Everything is so green here at the moment! It reminds me of when I was a kid growing up in Toowoomba it was always raining and green. :)

    Budgerigars near Pomona!

    We have budgies at our place - unfortunately mainly in the chicken coop, eating all the chicken food. It's so nice to see wild budgies and all there colours.

    this weather, power outages, etc

    Correct, the power was connected to a surge protected board but I think it was the surge flowing through the phone line that killed it. My new PC and everything else survived no worries.
