Power was the best present

Power was restored to our village before 2 AM on Christmas Day
After two days of flooding and no electricity that was the best present one could expect. We did not suffer too much but many did and some places are still without electricity.
The emergency services did a brilliant job. and still are.

As you already mentioned that the sea salt is already in the air you just need to add a big picture of the cobra and pilots cove next to the collection of topless / naked women you already have in your cab

Doors off! no thanks

Can't say I'll ever complete the 45+hrs for a PPL, but will be fun to get few hrs in.
