Some poor tourist copped it up at Terrigal the other night. Struck by lightning. Terrigal's 20 minutes up the road from here. Popular tourist spot, what with the lagoon and the beach. Anyways, it was storms and strikes galore, as it has been all week, and not the ideal time for fishing.
The Herald says she was "standing in ankle-deep water watching her boyfriend fish" and News.com.au says she was "walking between her boyfriend and a friend, who were holding fishing rods". They're both sure she was at Terrigal Beach.
Cool lightning photos
Had to pop into the supermarket at lunchtime. Argh. Forgot it was pension day. All the Dear Old Things were out in force and the stress of Christmas makes the rate of Senior Moments about 4 per hundred yards. I weaved and dodged and shifted their trolleys for them when they forgot where they were, removed some blasted sprog's sticky hand from where it latched onto my trousers, grabbed an armful of frozen pizzas and buggered off out of there.
No,wait, the sub-heading of this bit is Overtime not Trolley Rage. My brain is fried from doing overtime. Walkies tomorrow. Providing it's not pissing down or lightning striking.
