Windy Day

Boy it was windy here yesterday. I had to stay in the car while Mummy fed Boaz cause she was scared I'd get blow away.
We had wind gusts of 157kph (98 miles) and over 25,000 people lost power (we were one of them) because 20 Hydro poles fell down.
Thank Dog no idiots decided to light a fire near us cause otherwise it would of been very, very bad.

Here are some photos from out of our newspaper and you can read the full story here

Hi Gizmo!
I'm glad you are ok after all that wind! It's a good thing you stayed in the car so you didn't blow away! I would miss you if you did!

That's a lot of damage. Woo have a smart Mummy - can't take any chances with Gizmo getting blown away. But then, again, maybe woo would have gotten blown to our home.

Woos, the OP Pack

OMD Gizmo...that is very windy. It's a good thing you didn't blow away. We get windy here too, and we have to tell all the humans not to light fires. How dumb could they be?
Stay safe.

Crikey Giz, we didn't hear about the wind down Tassie way but then we haven't been watching the news much lately either.
Glad you guys are ok.
Have you had any rain this week? It's been dry up this way too. They keep talking about storms but nothing happens.
Happy Australia Day weekend.

Gizmo,

My mom HATES wind. She gets really nervous when it's very windy out. It doesn't bother me much though... I'm tough!
