Unhappy Chips (Moderator)

Hi People.

I'm just letting you all know that Chips who is one of our lovely moderators here on ADDF has been affected by the flooding that has occured in our home state of Queensland here in Australia and today she was struck by lightening during a heavy storm on the Sunshine Coast where she, her partner and cat live (which is an hour to an hour and a half north of Brisbane which is in the South East part of Queensland where I live, Brisbane has had it's fair share of this horrid weather but we are not flooded at this stage) but she is quiet traumatised but ok apart from a very sore arm, her and her partners computers have blown up and there is no landline phone connection at this stage.

I will be keeping up to date on her situation and letting you guys know whats going on.

Please do not worry as I do assure you all again that she is ok apart from the trauma of it all, this type of weather is quiet normal in Queensland at this time of the year especially in the North and Central Queensland areas.

Selena

Re: Chips (Moderator)

No worries Dane, she's on my Facebook and has told us whats happened (I assume she accessed FB via her mobile (cell) phone) and the roof apparently has a leak in it but both her and her partner are too worried (understandably so) about actually going out there to check it as the weather is apparently pretty wild.

Seriously the best thing to do in Queensland weather when it's like this is to stay indoors until it passes.

She is not in a cyclone prone area although she is closer to those areas than what I am and there are no cyclone warnings for our state at present.

I spend a lot of time in Arizona and it's famous for its monsoons and lightening strikes as well.

Re: Chips (Moderator)

Really?? Well I hope it's not too bad over there at the moment??

Queensland is a sh*t of a place for cyclones, heavy storms and heavy rain at this time of the year..this is the worst it's been in a while in my area but of course the further north or central you go the hotter it is and the more chance you have of bad weather.

Re: Chips (Moderator)

Thanks for letting us know Selena - glad she's OK! That has to be terrifying. Sounds a lot like Texas weather, which is can be some scary stuff.

I saw a lightning strike just outside my living room window last year. It sounded and looked like an explosion, and it scared the crap out of me.

Re: Chips (Moderator)

Geez Tiny I hope you Texans are safe at the moment hey??

Yeah to my knowledge she is ok now but I haven't heard anymore from her since but thats expected, hopefully she's taken mine and another friends advice, gone to the doctors/hospital and gotten her arm seen to and I hope they're both taking it easy and I certainly they can address the leak in their roof.

Re: Chips (Moderator)

We're good here, but might get snow tomorrow. Those type of storms generally occur in the spring, but have been known to happen at other times of year. Right now it's too cold.

Re: Chips (Moderator)

Thank you for keeping us up to date on the news Selena. I admit that gave me quite a scare especially when I read something about lightning.
Its good to hear that she seems to have past the worst of it now.

Yes she's still sore and bruised but getting there..I was just chatting with her partner and they seem to be over the worst of it.

Re: Chips (Moderator)

Good to know that they're back under a safe and dry roof (and online). The weather these past few months has been more severe around the world than I can recall in recent memory.

Re: Chips (Moderator)

I've seen very little US TV coverage of these floods which I take are massive (size of France and Germany taken together).

Thanks for the update, Selena, and please give Chips our collective best!
