Guba is dancing in the wind!

Cat is in the cupboard, dog is on the nose. We are checking our cyclone kit while outside it blows and blows!

Twirling round and round, Guba is proving to be unpredictable. That is the nature of weather systems such as cyclones - until they become very deep pressure systems moving towards land. There is not too much remaining unpredictable when a category three or higher cyclone is heading for a populated area of the coast!

Guba has already looped the loop once. Looks like that may be happening again!

At 10am this morning (Sunday 18th November, '07) Guba was twirling around off the coast of Far North Queensland. Located 203 nautical miles east of Lockhart River and moving slowly, it is thought there will not be any significant change in Cairns weather for up to 48 hours. We are experiencing rain, heavy at times. There is a strong wind warning with winds expected to spread southwards to Bowen tomorrow (Monday). What an opportunity to curl up and knit, crochet, cross stitch, sew or even do some writing!

Not being able to speak very well can be real challenge. So too can be an aching and twisted neck, shoulders and back! All that aside, the rain is so refreshing.
