    We were without power for 2 and 1/2weeks after yasi. Pancake mixes were great aswell 2 min noodles. Lots of fruit.

    We had a like portable q burner gas stove from bunnings it was a total life saver.

    I hope you get power back sooner than expected.

    Drive safe back. How are you going to fill the car up though as petrol stations rely on power for the pumps. Maybe get s couple jerry cans of fuel

    Have u got app on your phone for drive for the road closures? I second a butane has cooker my mum has been using one for two nights as her power has been going on and off. She still cooked roast chicken etc.. Also a bag of powered milk Coles next to Costco sell A2 which doesn't taste 'too bad' I can handle it in my coffee lol

    For those that said Fmc Didn't have power outage that wasn't true. Did u see the poor families that lost there embryos. And also apparently 17 nurses had to hand pump 'brain fart' to keep people alive. Because generators didn't kick in due to petrol. Also the baby born during the storms there! Ahh so many stories out there. Port Pirie etc with no power still.

    Made it home safe & power (limited) kicked in about 8pm last night. Still no phone reception, but have wifi so can communicate via FB to loved ones.

    Looks like i made the right choice coming home testerday too... saying major flooding in Port Wakefield area - what a nightmare that will be!! Long weekend and school holiday traffic makes it a long trip anyway - but flooding on top !

    Crazy to think people are still without phones and power. My cousin and his wife have just posted messages on FB saying they've had to drive to the next town to let people know they're ok as they have no phones still. Given how connected we all are these days, it's hard to imagine being without methods of communication for so long.

    Default SA Hubbers

    Thanks @jennykins, the storms are now over - thank goodness and a lot of horrible things happened (including an IVF centre who unfortunately lost power and therefore some embryos - so sad for everyone involved) and it seems like there's been some farmers who have lost many fruit and veg crops.

    But we have a lovely sunny 27 degree day today so hopefully that's all for the heavy rain for now.
