Well, we're as ready as we can possibly be in Townsville.
Here's hoping she doesn't move any further south as we've been told to expect Category 2 conditions where we are.
We've cut down the massive rain trees that overhang the back of the house.
I'm already missing the Barking Owl family.
And the back of the house looks somehow - naked.
But it does make the inside of the house brighter.
And I won't have to worry about sweeping up all of its shed leaves from now on.
Only the mess of the aftermath of the cyclone in the meantime.
We're set and ready to roll.
Gale force winds are expected to start here around midday but at the moment it's alternating with lovely sea breezes to next to nothing.
