Last Wednesday morning Yasi was on a direct course towards Daintree but luckily for us the predicted change to west south-westerly movement meant that we only just caught the very edge of the system for a couple of hours. Although we have been without mains power since Wed evening we are in relative comfort compared to many others. Broadband satellite still in operation but an electric lead running across our living-room floor to the ute’s battery in the carport mean only limited use of this equipment.
Power is now on in a few areas north of Mossman and Ergon Energy are doing their best – we’ll be back with more Dragonfly pictures soon. …. we are enjoying a lot of activity this season.
