It is cyclone Debbie.
Soooo not an intimidating name. Why couldn't they at least rename her Deborah when they decided she might be more than cat 3?
How embarrassing would it be to have all ones earthly goods destroyed by Debbie?
Probably i am being insulting to Debbies.
Probably they are a devastating force of nature too, when they want to be, hey?
I just wish work was closed like the schools.
I predict I shall arrive at a surgery with few doctors and spend all morning cancelling appointments (to much abuse, because that is a receptionists lot in life), until such time as i have to drive home in unsafe conditions and be unable to buy any last minute necessities i may require, because sensible businesses closed at midday, so that employees were left with plenty of time to make their homes safe with all the things one does not do till the last minute, like bringing the bins into the house, etc.
In my case, my bins into my kitchen and my scooter into the laundry.
I plan to spend most of tuesday drunk.
(If i can get to a bottle shop in time with the meagre pickings left of my pay after ordering a skip so I could clean up the block).
Yasi was an all night affair.
Debbie does daytime
Hopefully, Debbie does not blow Townsville ... away.
My poor brother in Mackay will probably have it much worse, though I have great faith in his partner Dianne to have done all sensible insurancy things. She is much more organised then I am. I wish I had a Dianne.
Dianne could totally take Debbie.
Pre-cyclone picture, all blushing pink and orange fire.
Toss ya for it?
