Meteye gave a good visual of Brisbane about 4pm, not quite so neat and tidy a rotation now.

Have a look at the Brisbane Doppler radar though ....she is still spinning like a top..with the "eye" currently right over Beenleigh..!

Yes, it's amazing. Wonder how it feels in Beenleigh.
The ordinary radar looks pretty good too, especially on 128km.

What a dismal March for G'vale - 64.8mm.

AP is running 1.2c above the average minimum and 1.8c above the average maximum with another 35c day expected today. There was only 1 day below the average Max for the whole month.

Another hot one you think Brett..?..Looks like it might be getting cooler after this thankfully...HF and Ron's beloved models are pointing towards showers in the next week.. wink....we have so far had 4 x 46c and above days in a row..I bet that hasn't happened to often in March before...the pooches and ourselves have been cooling off in the little pond behind the house several times a day....

Any seabreeze down there yesterday Ron..?..it seems pretty still out here again today..





The missus had a look on an Airlie beach forum and said that many people aren't coping well..particularly the townies used to their conveniences...some of the complaints are that the government should be choppering in the ergon crews to hasten power restoration,the government should have already had giant generators set up to go before the cyclone hit , its really hot because the air con doesn't work and some are running out of food... the saddest part is that these complaints seem to be from people whose homes survived relatively unscathed...

We ended up with 376.5mm for the month, just shy of the average. I think we all dodged a bullet by Debbie moving south, It was hard enough on the nerves with Yasi, can't begin to imagine the impact with the winds roaring for twice as long.

Scott, those people complaining will be the ones whose belongings will mysteriously suffer from water damage and have big insurance claims.

I seem to have had a pocket of dry air sitting over me since that storm. My DP has been about 8-10c lower that the MAP. I am currently on 13.8c and the MAP is on 23.3c. I am generally about 2c higher. Strange.
I believe it though because I had to get up and turn my ceiling fan off because I was cold even though it only went down to 22.4c

The ones complaining about not having food and water are the ones that bug me. I'll give a little leeway to the tourists but not to the locals. I just cant find compassion for anyone to useless to have a cyclone kit ready to go in cyclone season. So unless they had one and the cyclone destroyed it then i say suck it up sunshine.

Someone interviewed yesterday said he rather experience Yasi than Debbie, because of the length of time it took. Yasi came and went, Debbie took forever.

Yes GnL and Brett, I'm sure those folks are already lining up at the community centre with their hands out while the people actually affected are getting into stuck into the cleanup..

I wouldn't rather either 28 ..

Sorry about the photo quality..but as I was pondering during smoko on the front verandah...Weber Q or Weber Kettle....?

Nothing like a cheeky Cassowary wandering in to get a feed. Rancid is a good word to describe the day RF. It's amazing how far my tether is stretching. I thought I reached the end of it a couple of weeks back but it is still managing to hold me back from going insane......Just. This HAS to end soon.

Cool capture Scott.

I saw a video of that funnel on FaceBook, RF. The video didn't show it hitting the ground.

Still looking good for some rain next week!

25 minute shower around 3pm gave us a lovely 10mm.
Was hoping the next blob would come across, I think it did but missed us.

(SkyMuster died of course, and needed to be rebooted to work again, although most of the time it connects again automatically.)

Would have been a long smoko if you used the kettle Scott.
30 mins for the beads to 'ash over', then chuck your tucker on ! mad

The real question though, hickory, is how long would it take to cook that cassowary..?..

28, the bugga's are breeding up down this way..the neighbor tells me there are now 5 birds of different ages and sex roaming our properties...I'm a bit worries about my dogs getting injured as we are sometimes just walking around the garden and bump right into a cassowary..
