Yesterday a 15 minute storm hit Alice Springs and had the same intensity winds as a category 1 cyclone (well so a friend of a friend told me....!) Fortunately we were on the edge of it here at Simpsons so we didn't get quite so battered, but in town trees were down everywhere and power was out to most of the town for most of the afternoon and night. I got some pretty good photos outside our house on Phil's camera of the dust storm that came through after the rain.
This is the back of our new house at Simpsons Gap in the West MacDonnell National Park. Now we are only about 15 minutes out of Alice Springs which has worked out great.
I guess we can't go by without putting at least one photo of our little cutie on here!! She has the most beautiful eyes!
