Re: ECL?

Don called this one. He's got any bragging rights. Interesting spread of winds across SE QLD/NE NSW... Fcuking bucketing down and howling wind here right now...I'd say storm force gusts at least.....would expect some wind damage around...winds seem ok on the Goldy right now... ....hmmmm...might take...

Re: Quik Stock heading north.

Well, based on minimum wage calculations and a bit of scribbling with a pencil.....I figure Peely owes me about 10 large in backpay....so tell you what Peely, you pay for me and NC to come up there and I'll write your next "feature" which you can quote for your brochure. Then we'll call it square an...

Sorry ....jeez both the biggest boffins in mag history and still no cigar....the final was Drew Courtney and Kieren Perrow.(courtney won). An anti-climax after the Wallace/Lowe quarter.

BOM have the low off Cape Moreton now....I still think it's slightly more NW in towards the Sunny Coast from radar and IR loops.

Fcuking hilarious.
Loose cannon in the box.....breath of fresh air compared to the usual stale cliche-ridden dog caca.
Would've been good to have a Slater/Irons combo.

Re: Quik Stock heading north.

It was raining at the time and it has continued to rain -- bullshit that is -- ever since. Funny you should mention that NC...because Reign in Bullshitt is actually the title of Peelies biography.......yet to be written of course. Were still waiting on the photoshop guru to be born who can make Pee...

Re: ECL?

Interesting wind obs across the Sunny Coast right now : ESE to 49 knots! at Cape Moreton, while light offshore at Tewantin......Me thinks the zone of convergence is somewhere between Double Island point and the mouth of the Noosa River.

25-35knots of E wind at Cape Byron. It's ugly here.

Coinciding with the immense swell and wind episode that'll be occurring along most of the coast this weekend will be two of the highest tides of the year -- Sat and Sun evenings. Look out Collnarra. This'll be a really interesting chapter in the Kirra saga......after 6 weeks of constant onslaught t...

Re: Quik Stock heading north.

Yeah but even a perennial barrel dodger like Peel has to get close to use PS.
Come on Peely, where's the shot.....give your rig to one of your highly paid employees and tell him to burn some frames.
Hell, he might even make you redundant.

Re: ECL?

Doesn't good good Marcus. If the trough/low spins up somewhere near Fraser we'll be right in the firing line of the strongest onshore gales. Can't see it settling down until early next week. I'd be thinking Sunny Coast if you have any flexibility. Otherwise, mincing around Byron cafes will be offsho...

Re: Quik Stock heading north.

Alright Peely this getting boring for the punters (not that that has ever been an impediment for you).

Ok....here's the deal:

Get one clean shot of yourself in a clean standup barrel and I'll cease and desist on the relentless attacks on your credibility.

He could always hire Longinus as his event forecaster.

Maybe he could conjure up a tow swell before Wednesdsay.
