As I write this, Tropical Cyclone Marcia has just crossed the coast of Queensland.
Where I am, it is safe. By the time it reaches us, it will have blown out and we will only have some strong wind gusts and heavy rain.
It’s already raining here and has been most of the night however.
I have friends in the cyclone’s path and I am concerned for their safety though. Schools have been closed and people are being evacuated in the immediate storm path. Our area does suffer from localised flooding so we are being told to prepare. Thankfully, we live on the side of a hill and the Teen’s school texted me this morning to advise that they are still open today.
In other news, I am well. Extremely busy and I have the best intentions to write a blog post and then life happens. I have many comments on my last post to answer however this morning, I have other commitments so will get to answering them when I can. Perhaps later this afternoon or possibly tomorrow.
We have to travel into Brisbane in this rain this morning. I’m not looking forward to it but I’m pleased that the Garden Gnome is an excellent driver.
We should be home before the worst of the weather arrives.
Funny how the world is in extremes right now isn’t it? I’m thinking of all of you in the Northern Hemisphere who are snowbound whilst we are anticipating flooding.
Take care all. Be safe.
