Cyclone Season Mark II

Just a little update, we made it through the storm ok, it was pretty scary there for a while, with some very wild winds and last night a whole line of huge electrical storms went over the top of us, following in Yasi’s wake.

Bunker

We spent the night in the dark, hiding in the cyclone bunker, drinking whiskey and beer and playing scrabble under candlelight.  I can think of worse ways to while away a few hours in the dark with family.  In hindsight, Cairns was incredibly lucky, and there are still no reported deaths or serious injury afaik, so I think in all, the whole area hit were extremely well prepared.

We have no power at home, it’s been off almost 48 hours now, and finding access to telephones, internet or any kind of news has been really hard.  BUT, we made it through.  I don’t know yet the full scale of the disaster to the south of Cairns, but I’ve booked into a motel for a few days to escape the heat, thank goodness!

Thanks for all the kind comments left on my last post!  My SL friends are never far from my mind and it’s lovely to know that people are thinking of me as well!  ❤

I’m still fairly restricted, internet-wise, but I will do my best to answer queries and respond to my customers in this brief reprieve and hopefully power will be restored by the time I head back to my folks, so it will be business as usual!

Until then, stay safe, warm and dry, especially those of you in frozen countries!

Cyclone Season.

A few weeks ago I decided that in order to get away from all the stress of the Brisbane floods, it would be a really good idea to visit my family in Cairns.  2 days after I arrived, this happened.  Needless to say, I am very unimpressed, and my family is in disaster survival mode.  For the record, this cyclone is category 5, 2000km wide from top to base, and very, very dangerous, and I find myself right in it’s path.

The rain and wind have just started to pick up now, and we have about 9 hours before the monster officially starts to cross the coast.  I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t worried, I am terribly worried and a little frightened, as nothing like this has been seen in Australia in living memory, so no one knows what to expect.

For those of you in the US, this is a Hurricane Katrina equivalent cyclone, just spinning in the opposite direction.  Please keep us in Queensland in your thoughts, we’ve really been through a hell of a lot lately, but this just takes the cake.

For my customers, I am offline from now, until this is over.  We may lose power, so I could be offline for a week or more.  I will respond to your queries as soon as I can, please be patient.
