Wow.. thats one hell of a magic act. Now you see them, now you dont. You must be able to walk across every creek and puddle up there at moment -- boat to boat of course.
Cheers

Ozskipper,
Small world. I'm in Gorokan, next to Toukley. Enjoying the heat? I never thought i'd say it but I'm feeling lucky compared to the poor devils in Qld!
Hell yeh it is a small world. Getting smaller too lol.
Yeh the heat, its a little toasty to say the least. Almost killed my new lawn off in one day. (I may have breached a water restriction today- may have!! But I am not admitting to anything hehe)

How long have you been up at Gorokan. I grew up on the coast, cut my teeth at Long Jetty and Gossie sailing clubs. A long time ago- not admitting how long ago it was either- make me feel old lol.

Cheers
Oz

This satellite loop image is pretty dramatic. According to the weatherman there are 24 hours to go.

Simple loops

We used to have a saying in Queensland about our awesome State: "Beautiful one day, perfect the next." Might have to change it to something like: "Wet one day, rainy the next." or "Washed away one day, blown away the next."

It is scary. My place in Rockhampton is safe, might end up with 50 km/hr to 80 km hr winds on the house (my estimate), but family up near Cairns have evacuated. Other family is bunkering down in safe places, things like generators started up for testing, stores of food, water and fuel prepared.

I told someone that 80 km/hr winds can blow trees over and 300 km/hr winds can blow the rust off steel. I was only half joking about the rust as high winds are mind-blowing powerful. I said to my wife that if we were up north in the path of the cyclone I would be thinking about leaving our house to go some where extra safe. Our house is average but I would not trust 'average' with this cyclone. When TC Larry hit Innisfail, about half the houses sustained serious damage. This cyclone might even have a bigger punch than Larry, certainly it covers a wider area.

If you are in the path of the cyclone, our thoughts are with you.

Hi Troppo, Anna Bligh this morning told ABC Radio "This is the most severe, most catastrophic storm that has ever hit our coast".

and they just stated this storm will be stronger than TC Tracy which was 50Kmh less then this one.

I just found the fridge is warm, checked the compressor and found a thin film of oil over the unit, glad that is all I have to worry about. My heart goes out to the brothers up North.
