Getting Blown Away
Over the last couple of days we have been on cyclone watch. To be honest I think we have had windier days during this summer but its not a good idea to get complacent. We were talking last night about a cyclone that hit Gladstone in, I think, 1949 that went down the coast, did a u-turn and then hit Gladdie. It was called the 'devil's cyclone' as it flattened all the churches but all the pubs were left standing. Yesterday was spent tidying up the yard and tying down what couldn't be put away. As we live in a new suburb we were pretty annoyed that no builders cleaned up their sites, I'm sure there would be some good missiles at a housing site. Anyway, it hasn't amounted to much yet and it looks as though it will just travel parallel to the coast and fizzle out (here's hoping).
