I’m a bit of a weather geek (we can get some extremes here in Cairns) and we now have a cyclone that has just spun up off the coast. Currently a category 2 but is supposed to intensify to a 3 tonight. If you like to watch this sort of thing have a look at http://mirror.bom.gov.au/products/IDR19 ... shtml#skip

If you lived some place more temperate you'd have none of these issues.

Yea it feels like we dodged a bullet here in Cairns, it passed us by as a category 3, it is now sitting off the coast of Mackay as a category 5 :shock:
