Hi guys Having experienced a few 'Big Blows' yawnyawnyawn†in my fifteen years in Darwin I know that Territorians are a resilient lot.† Have family and friends still enjoying the lifestyle up there.† †They were not that concerned about 'Marcus', battened down the hatches for 'just a storm in a teacup' as one family member told me yesterday!!!†

Everyone was more concerned about missing the footy (Tiwi Island Grand final) after driving into town just for it.† Thinks maybe a few downed trees to move away out at their block at Dundee will be all.† †

K.J -† Darwin does not have a winter, so the idea of a 'firewood killing'† was rather a hilarious suggestion by their standards.† Gwynnie† †floating.gif

TROPICAL CYCLONE WARNING

Severe Tropical Cyclone Nora, Category 3, is moving southeast across the northern Gulf of Carpentaria. The Tropical Cyclone is expected to reach Category 4 strength in the next 6-12 hours while over the northeast Gulf of Carpentaria. The Tropical Cyclone is expected to take a more southerly track tonight or early Sunday and move towards the southeastern Gulf of Carpentaria coast. A coastal crossing anywhere along the western Cape York Peninsula south of Weipa this afternoon or Sunday is also possible. From later Sunday, the Tropical Cyclone is expected to become slow moving over the southeastern Gulf of Carpentaria or over land along the southern Gulf coast.

If any of you Grey Nomads plan to head North in the near future, check with the local Authorities†regarding flooded roads, many may be cut during†and after this Cyclone comes ashore.

K.J.

A very handy 25mm in my gauge. Rained last night but only enough to keep the ground damp. Nothing registrable in the gauge. I think i am about 10km s/e of you. A few warm days and we will all be green again as it was good soaking rain.

Speaking of family, had morning tea with KJB a few Saturdays' ago.

Warm & humid in Townsville!

The days have been reasonably nice but during the evenings, the breezes cease, necessitating the air conditioner to be run. It's supposed to be raining tomorrow, Saturday (Hooray)!!wink

Drizzling on the station. Enough to make it slippery, but not enough to help grow the grass.
