jaymz: I too have to admit i love weather like what is predicted! guess it is the rush with getting prepared.

I am in Hamilton. This morning there was a nice red sky as the sun rose. It was sunny out (with high cloud) earlier but it appears to have darkened a bit in the last 30 mins. Still high cloud.

I will be pinning the tramp to the ground when i get home, dont want that flying away. other than that we are pretty set.

This shows the predicted/acutal path at the moment

Tramps are shockers in this weather! Have heard stories of them ending up in odd places!


Don't they just put on a raincoat and ply their business as usual, like parking wardens?

I try and stay away from them in general.

LMAO... in Far North Qld the main thing that happens in a cyclone is the bottleshops all sell out! :)
Last one I was in dropped 500mm of rain in 24hrs. We had a good party though! Only thing that was really annoying was the damned radio broadcasting its emergency warning cutting off good songs all the time.

And I love Metservice: "MetService will continue to refer to Tropical Cyclone Lusi as 'Cyclone Lusi' in its land-based warnings, even though it has begun a change in structure that will eventually lead to the system no longer being defined as a tropical cyclone"

I finished stacking firewood (so it won't get wet), put the recyclables in the bin with the lid latched, tied my young trees to poles. Did the washing yesterday. So tomorrow I plan to do little indoor chores but otherwise chill. I'm in the Eastern Bay of Plenty.

Wow, I just read that as "I tied my young to poles" and thought "isn't your house secure enough?"

I'm gonna drink the coffee machine dry just in case it gets sucked up in to the storm :)




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

To heck with coffee. I asked Hubby to pick up some beer and asked him to make pizza. He makes terrific pizza. I would never tie my young to poles. Posts maybe.

Edit bear to beer, lol.
