Still no power here. Chatting to the energex blokes outside and apparently they were here at 11am with the tools to restore power to 7000 people but their paperwork wasn't in order so they weren't allowed to start.
Wasn't oh&s either, apparently one of the trees that came down was on the register so they weren't able to clear it.

I'm a greenie by most measures but that is just fcuking retarded

Ha, I'm guessing you found shelter somewhere. I've never seen hail come down like that. It was like it was being shot out of a cannon. Neighbouring townhouses had windows smashed in. One piece of hail actually punched through the fibro facia. Never seen that before. Also, went for a walk through the local park - big healthy trees snapped in half. Takes a bit of wind to do that.

Finally got power back on here, cleaned up the yard, and things are pretty much back to normal.

Geez 'boo. Between Telstra and Energex, you don't do too well with the services do you?

Well an energex truck just managed to take out a water mains pipe so the water is off now.

and lol at swellnet goldie reports from the sydney office. They're now complete with frame grabs from the snapper cam as the daily pic. no wonder they're never even in the ballpark of whats happening.

at this point, I'm not sure why they're even bothering, i can't imagine anyone taking them seriously.

My mate checked from Maroochydore to Kings beach this morning at dawn and said it was 1-2ft weak as p1ss onshore crap.

Here's the SN SC report from today:

Updated: Mon 1 December 6:12am
Surf: Clean 2ft E
Winds: Light W
Weather: Mostly Sunny
Rating: 3/10
Things are pretty much the same as earlier with 2ft waves from the east and clean conditions with the westerly winds. It's worth having a hunt around for the best banks, as there's some fun rides on the sets, see if you can get wet early before the ENE winds kick in. Keep an eye out for the good ones changing though as the tide is dropping and will bottom out at 9.33 am. Hope you get some, have a great day.

Mon 1 December 4:09am: Clean 2ft E, Light W, Mostly Sunny 3/10
Dawn Report: 2ft waves for the Sunny Coast this morning and conditions are clean early with the light westerly winds. It'll be best to get in early before the winds swing onshore. Check back around 8am for the photo report.

same here I was up at 4:30 before the reports were done and looked at the bom and saw it was a light offshore, so went for a sniff. It was dire, lumpy onshore pus ... so dire there wasn't a single person out from the alley to bilinga which for summer is unheard of if its 1-2 foot and clean.

... but swellnet will you have believe it was clean with some fun 'sliders' around ...

at this point they're pretty much taking the piss from any half way decent surfer and completely catering their service for kooks on funboards, soft tops and finless foamies.

That's quite strange. My local has a dedicated guy who never misses posting an accurate report complete with photos (photos not up 'til about 8am). Comparatively, the Goldie market is massive so it makes no sense whatsoever

Although, there's quite a few Hypto Kryptos about down here

They can't find a local reporter prepared to face Steve's withering criticism of their score out of 10.

the fcuking dingbat gave scores of 3 and 4 out of 10 all winter for super high quality Point surf. He gave the day of the winter a 7/10.
Two weeks ago he gave a super clean peaky morning, the best surf in weeks a 3/10.

Then he gives pure puss NE dribble 3/10.

It's absolute german cuckoo-clock crazy.

Maybe he is undercover... He could purposefully be doing you all a massive favour...
