Yasi in on her way...

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.  

Have fun!


  1. Hello, just a message to say our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family and everyone in North Queensland. We have been watching the tv and are finding it so hard to believe the feriocity of the cyclone that is about to hit.

    All our best wishes, stay safe and talk to you soon.

  2. HI Barefoot, Hope all is well for you and your family. We have one of the trees down in the backyard, but the house is fine and so are we.
