Thread Name: What's the weather like where you are?
Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
Tropical Cyclone Yasi just ripped it's devastating way through Cairns and Far North Queensland and caused great damage though, fortunately, we were spared the full force of the cyclone here in Cairns as it veered off the predicted course during the last hours before landfall. Most of us lost powe (plus a few trees) for a few days but doesn't it make you appreciate the luxury of something we don't usually even notice - just a flick the switch and bingo! We are now back to hot and sticky monsoonal weather after three days of electric storms as the cyclonic low moved further south.
