I know I don’t usually blog on a Saturday but ex tropical cyclone Marcia (now thankfully a low pressure system and no longer a cyclone) has just passed over us here in Brisbane dumping oodles of heavy rainfall. It is still raining but it seems that the worst of it is over now.
I don’t know about you but the word Marcia immediately makes me think of Marcia from The Brady Bunch. Maybe it is my age or maybe it is because Maureen McCormick who played Marcia in The Brady Bunch is currently on our TV each evening in ‘I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here’? Anyway – anyone who is or was a Brady Bunch fan will understand the ‘Marcia, Marcia, Marcia’ reference! As a kid, I loved that show. I used to brush my hair for 100 strokes just like Marcia did. As a young girl, I adored Marcia! Anyway – I digress!!
Most people would curl up with a coffee and a good book on a day like today but not me! I grabbed the camera and tried to grab a souvenir of Marcia’s presence. I was under the roof of the back pergola area but still got wet as the rain was fast and furious and coming in under the roof horizontally. I was more concerned about my camera getting wet than me to be honest, so I snapped away very quickly. As a result these are not the greatest of photographs but I got the memento of Marcia I was after!
Say hello to the last dregs of Marcia as she passed over WOTM headquarters. She’ll be at the Gold Coast now and then she will disappear out to sea never to be seen again. We hope!
Thoughts are with our northern friends up around Yeppoon, Rockhampton and nearby areas that were affected by Marcia in her full cyclonic form!
Ciao for now,
This post was published on a Saturday but is linked up today with My Little Drummer Boys for #WordlessWednesday
In order to still post today, I shook things up and did something a little different. Please pop over and also read today’s post ‘All about that bag‘!
