Christmas 2010 will be a wet one

The BOM have been warning us all week that the low is likely to intensify and just after midnight, a Tropical Low, followed by a Cat 1 cyclone was announced overnight, with the threat map tracking towards Gordonvale, between Cairns and Innisfail.

The Bureau says the tropical low, with gusts up to 85 km/h, is expected to continue moving towards the north tropical coast and intensify...
  • "The low is expected to cross the coast between Cairns and Cardwell early Saturday morning. There is the potential for the system to reach weak category 1 tropical cyclone intensity prior to landfall. Damaging winds of up to 100 km/hr are possible between Port Douglas and Lucinda as the system approaches the coast during Saturday morning.

I hope all CairnsBlog readers are wrapped up warm and dry and have a great day, regardless of the weather, and regardless if your God is real or not.

Bless you, even if you don't have a cold.

I didn't hear Santa last night but Cyclone Tasha woke me up at 5:30am, wind gusts blowing rain onto my face through an open window!
Happy Holidays.

We were woken at the same time as MB with a palm frond hitting the ships bell on our deck post and breaking the metal. I had a last minute run around the house before I went to bed and closed every window in the house. Glad I did. Gordonvale always gets more rain and is hotter than Cairns. Of ocurse it was all my fault that we got Tasha visit us.
Santa asked me what I wanted for Christmas and I said "Surprise me!" he did!
