We're not in Kansas anymore ...

These weather patterns are bloody crazy.

The floods across Queensland and many other areas of the eastern states.

Now a fricking cyclone is going to hit Perth? This sh*t just doesn't happen, people! For those unfamiliar with Western Australian geography, the north of the state is tropical, so they get tropical cyclones at this time of year (like hurricane season in the south of the US). Perth has a Mediterranean climate, the cyclones almost never make it down here - according to the news article, 1978 was the last time we had one.

Batten down the hatches! The kids have left craploads of stuff outside that I'd better try and secure, not to mention the stuff we don't have room for in the house, like the outdoor storage cabinet I JUST put up, with great difficulty, yesterday. Sigh.

Oooh! Good thing I have cleaned out the garage so my car can be nice and safe. Also awesome that we don't have trees up here yet.

Hope it doesn't pass through strongly and that you all stay safe.
