FREO’S WET AND WINDY SUNDAY

Stiff breeze
Rain Pipes for Fremantle

Gusty winds, showers and low temperature is making it a challenging Sunday to be out and about in Fremantle, but I needed the walk and fresh air.

WET AND WILD FREO SUNDAY

It is very windy in Fremantle with a lot of heavy rain forecast, so best to stay warm and cosy at home with a book and watch the West Coat Eagles game.

The good thing about stormy weather are the clouds, so maybe we’ll get a stunning sunset like this one I took early this week.

MORE RAIN TO COME

rain

 

There are some pretty heavy showers in Fremantle this morning, but it is just a warning of things to come, with big storm expected late this afternoon.

I could not see the Norfolk trees at South Beach from my balcony and the fine mist of rain also largely obscured the North Quay cranes.

Perfect weather for the gardens and for staying at home with a good book, but not great for one of the last days of school holidays.

It looks like the predicted bad weather is moving in quite fast, as this photo taken at about 9.30am at Fremantle’s Bruce Lee oval shows. Batten down, Freo!

The weather forecast for the weekend is wild and wet, and it looked like that for a while this morning when I walked along the Fishing Boat Harbour.

MANY FREMANTLE STREETLIGHTS OUT

Posted in city of fremantle, local government, traffic, Uncategorized by freoview on June 18, 2020

 

The street lights around Fremantle are not working in many streets, so is it all the digging going on by the water and gas people, storm related, or is Fremantle Council saving money?

On Friday night the lights along the Cappuccino Strip and Market Street were out from Essex Street to the railway station and this morning a friend texted to say the lights are not working at Parry Street near Fremantle Oval, at the Italian Club roundabout, at Ord Street, Ellen Street, East Street, etc.

The lights were also out on High Street between Mouat and Cliff Street, so someone at CoF needs to go for a drive after 5.30pm and check out where the lights are out and why.

A pitch black dark city is not a safe city.

STORM DAMAGE IN BOOYEEMBARA PARK

Yesterday’s storm did a bit of damage in Fremantle’s Booyeembara Park, with one tree uprooted and several others losing big branches.

It is a lovely park to have a quite walk in though and watch some of the wildlife.

storm 1

 

Get ready for more of this on Friday as a big storm is expected to hit us from mid afternoon with heavy rain, very strong winds and unusually high tides.

If you are going away for the WA Day long weekend it will be best to leave in the morning.

GETTING A SOAKING AT BATHERS BEACH

 

storm 1

storm 5

 

Oh my golly goodness did I just get soaking wet at Fremantle’s Bathers Beach! I was taking photos at the Fishing Boat Harbour without realising the boardwalk got flooded, so I was standing in ten centimetres of water. I hope my shoes will dry one day.

Then there was rain and a lot of spray from the massive waves at our city beach.

It is beautiful to watch, so well worth it that I needed to put new clothes on for the second time today.

The things I do for my Freo’s View readers, hey. Some will claim though I only report about negativity. ;>))
