I see we are in for gale force winds tomorrow ...estimated at 50-70 knots on the coast ESE direction between 1770 and Coolangatta. Heavy rain and a high tide record is expected.... flooding in low lying beach suburbs with severe beach erosion. Just did a yard check for "objects-de-hit neighbours" and pat BT down for the night !! [smile] I see the NSW people whipped up a high [wink] ... with our low off mid-Qld gives a great day. If any are familiar with Moreton Bay and the Bribie Passage ...the passage seas are to be 1.5 metres and the Bay at 2.5 metres. Outside Moreton is 5 metres plus ....MMMmmm ! Nice ! Be the worst in two years of Sundays ...if it eventuates !!! Fun, fun, fun .....Can you order a BT in full checkerplate !!! Sigh ! Anthony Explore this Great Land ...Do it Easy ...Tow a Bushtracker

Batten down the hatches, hoist the mainsail, come about skipper. A storm may be brewing in Brisbane but wait til Cyclone Angie hits there in 146 days! Nah, hope you and your loved ones survive the storm Anthony. So that's the garage and BT covered. Who is going to look after the womenfolk? Angie

Thanks Anthony for the news. That would be right.



We just dropped our van off at BT this weekend for
repair after the hail/lightning damage.

Better get the boat off the mooring and head North.
That little chop is bound to bring a few Marlin up.

There are only 2 types of fish, Baitfish and Billfish.

Hey Angie, Turned into a bit of a fizzer really. Winds were probably more like 40 knots at the house which was just enough to wake you every now and then with the rain. Had 5 inches of rain overnight though ....dont need to water herbs today !!! [smile] I drove to Redcliffe today and the sand was about 40mm deep covering the road on the esplanade in many places. Nearly turned back and hooked up the BT to effie !!! [wink] Highest seas off Cape Moreton (exposed ocean) were 16 metres ...hope Bob wasnt on his way !!!

Well Anthony, Macka and Co, Glad you are all okay after such a build up. I had email piccies from a friend and the worst thing they got was some palm fronds falling down in their backgarden. So good that all is well. Angie 144 sleeps to go
