Cut it Out!

This Owl clock nearly didn't get made yesterday.
Autumn Showers Owl Clock
It was mid afternoon and I had just plugged in the electric saw and started to cut out the mdf when Wham! Crack! A humongous storm hit .
There was the deafening sound of 6cm hailstones hitting the windows along with the instantaneous power cut and the acrid smell of burning in the air.
I wrongly thought my saw had blow up and I was "electrified". Took a few minutes off my life I can tell you!!!!
Having experienced the 100 year flood of 03' at our place with shin deep water swirling through the house, evacuations , insurance claims and minor heartbreak over lost possessions, we all get a bit nervous when it POURS!!!!
Best wishes to everyone who's experiencing storm damage and flooding(not just in Victoria, but up north too). My thoughts are with
