My village of Robertson is being battered by huge winds this afternoon.

I heard some Magpies calling out, and looked up in time to watch two Magpies playing in the huge winds.

Suddenly they both flew upwards into the wind, and were then carried backwards about 150 metres, before descending to treetops again. 
It may as well have been choreographed. Beautifully done.
They stayed together, very closely, like ballet dancers.

JP Morgan once said
''If everyone can draw on the power, then where do we put the meter?'' 
That's why we need Renewable energy.
