They were calling it a one in eighty five year event – a wind and swell combination of epic proportions.
If you live on the east coast of Australia then you are familiar with forecasts not delivering to expectation. They either fade away before arriving or come with hideous wind and directional issues.
Not this one.
On Sunday the swell has arrived along with gale force onshore winds and rain. The ocean was very very angry and unleashing that full fury on the coastline. Millionaire housing rows were erased from their beach front locations along with huge edifices of shoreline. Its a level of raw energy more comparable to a winter storm steam rolling out of Antarctica into the tip of Africa than the eastern seaboard of Australia.
