Tough start to year but ....
Its been a tough start to the year.  It started with fires that threatened the Central Coast but in the end we dodged a bullet as they were stopped before they did any real damage.  Then it was the storm that caused havoc and resulted in extensive damaging flooding around Tuggerah Lake.
