Birthday Weekend

This past weekend was one of the craziest I have ever seen. A HUGE storm blew in that lasted for about 3 days. The swell in the ocean got up to 17 meters, or almost 60 feet, causing a massive coal tanker to run aground on Nobby's beach, about a half mile from my apartment. Winds were gusting over 50mph, and over 8 inches of rain fell in less than 24 hours, causing widespread flooding. We still managed to have a great time on my birthday, but we obviously had to celebrate indoors. Here is a BBC story about the storm...crazy stuff.
