Red Love

I bought this hand towel for Australia Day...backyard bbq's are the go. However the east coast suffered cyclonic weather and we were flooded, beaches were washed away and electricity was wiped out for days...the state government then decided to make another date so this Sat has been selected...guess what, high tides have washed beaches away, there is flooding in many of the towns that were flooded before and we have been told to expect lots of rain what to do with the paper towel ??

Hope the weather isn't too bad, love the roll

You could always save it for a rainy day. ;-)

Love these paper towels! Hopefully you won't need to use them to wipe up some of the flooding...
Graeme23-Feb-2013 11:52
How awful for you Laine, to have one day lost but two as well is shocking...
Yvonne23-Feb-2013 10:37
The east coast certainly is taking a lashing! Agree with Mieke, put it away
til next year... v
Mieke WA Minkjan23-Feb-2013 08:51

Very neat towels and I hope the weather gets better soon.

So very sorry for all the flooding, destruction, and disappointment. Hope it reverses soon. The towel makes a great statement and colorful!

Looks like a pretty absorbent paper towel from the texture... how much rain do you think you'll be able to mop up with it?
Sorry, couldn't resist.
There doesn't seem to have been as much wind or rain as forecast down here today, hopefully it's the same up your way.

Sorry to hear about the weather...but I love this image of the paper towel.

That savage weather is still happening, but happy Australia the message...V

Sorry 'bout the weather, but love the photo! I suppose you will have to hold a picnic in your garage. :)

That's nice just to look at, Laine. Thanks for sharing the picture of them. Sorry you're having more flooding. Hope the rain stops for you soon.
Janice Dunn22-Feb-2013 23:29
Oh dear - more floodings - sorry. It was 2 years yesterday since Christchurch had its BIG earthquake where many were killed. And yesterday they had 2 more big jolts - nothing has settled down there either.
what to do with the paper towel? I thought it was loo paper at first!!
Coleen Perilloux Landry22-Feb-2013 22:48
Sorry, but I had to laugh at your writing--sounds so familiar. I like the towel. There will be a tomorrow for the towel..
Frank Brault22-Feb-2013 22:36
Sorry for all the terrible weather. Lovely textures in the towel. V
Laryl22-Feb-2013 22:25
I'm so sorry to hear about the bad weather.. neat photo but hopefully you can get some relief from that weather soon!

Australia will remain a great country despite the weather but the tragedy and destruction must be so hard to bear.
faye white22-Feb-2013 22:19
Me too!
Colin Storey22-Feb-2013 22:14
Great details and textures. You are having a terrible time with the weather, sounds like being here, only more extreme. :-(
Karen Stuebing22-Feb-2013 22:13
It made a great photo. I like the composition with the edge trailing away. And nice colors. Maybe they'll postpone the holiday again? Stay dry.
J. Scott Coile22-Feb-2013 21:51
Me too. One day....
