A quick post to let you know that we are on Yellow Alert for Tropical Cyclone George. Yellow Alert means that a cyclone is expected in the next 12-24 hours. At this stage the weather people are expecting it to hit at about 3am. It's currently Category 3 with winds at about 230km/hr at the centre of it and travelling at 20km/hr. It will probably be Category 4 by the time it hits and, at the moment, is heading straight for us. Of course, cyclones are totally unpredictable and it may all just blow over, or head back out to sea or (fingers crossed) change direction and head towards somewhere free of towns and people.
I'll let you have updates as they come in but if I disappear for a couple of days, don't worry. I expect the power will go off and it may take a day or two to restore.
Now we are off to clear the yard and put everything away in the shed!
