Nope, quite the opposite. Read my threads above.

How do the mangoes communicate with you?

They told us last year we were going to have a monster cyclone season.

no they didn't. they said at least one big one, which we did, and we scored, didn't we?

Negatory. We got a one day wonder swell from TC Lusi which was torn to shreds by twenty knot nor-easters.

As usual, it went around the back of us. But we're getting some gentle rain ATM. With a bit of thunder and lightning.

they say it was the worst since the '85 storm ... i remember that one. Our roof caved in above the kitchen at aspley and the whole house flooded from the back yard and we were in knee deep water.

that was gnarly.

and we've also spent time on the rock, aka Bribie Island & sunny coast. maybe we're related?


my parents moved back to aspley about 20 years ago and decided thats where they want to settle.

Then rained pretty much all night. Looks like it's just easing up now.
A bit over two inches. :B

Still no power here. Chatting to the energex blokes outside and apparently they were here at 11am with the tools to restore power to 7000 people but their paperwork wasn't in order so they weren't allowed to start.
Wasn't oh&s either, apparently one of the trees that came down was on the register so they weren't able to clear it.

I'm a greenie by most measures but that is just fcuking retarded

Ha, I'm guessing you found shelter somewhere. I've never seen hail come down like that. It was like it was being shot out of a cannon. Neighbouring townhouses had windows smashed in. One piece of hail actually punched through the fibro facia. Never seen that before. Also, went for a walk through the local park - big healthy trees snapped in half. Takes a bit of wind to do that.

Finally got power back on here, cleaned up the yard, and things are pretty much back to normal.
