Good luck Dave , I've been through plenty of those , plenty of clean up after it passes , and then gardening again , just gets to look good and you get hit by another :angry:

Looks like Willy is going to pass me by , hang on and keep your head down :blink:

Big D, hope everything is ok.

Maybe you should use some of that nice fresh rainwater, brew a beer and call it Ingrid's Ale.

Well done Big D. And a couple of nights off night shift as well! I had visions of the town having no power, being under water, everyone being hungry, then, out of the pouring rain comes a bloke riding a harley, towing a soup kitchen (that looks a lot like a HLT mounted on a Nasa burner) to dispense hot soup to all who need it.

hang tight bonk.it passed us with the centre at 260km/h.the abc news has just said it has now got wind at the centre of 320 km/h.more powerful than cyclone tracy.this thing is getting very menacing.

cheers
big d

Good to see your village and all residents are now over that big d.
and I hope with not too much loss overall.
Gee Bonk now it's your turn to batten down the brewery, the wife, the kids, the pets and even the mother in law.

I hope all is well for Darwin.

Hey Batz,
If it does a turn after Darwin towards the south west it will have covered all of the AHB breweries in the far north.

Seriously, I hope all comes out OK for you guys,

Cheers
