One of the trees along the street near here was pretty much missing its top half... wasn't an overly big tree, but still...!

I noticed some trees messed up, but nothing quite that significant. The battery's died on my camera and it needs to run off that to transfer anything to my computer, so I can't even review what I took to see if there's anything worth uploading!

I've been in one cyclone in my time in Australia, so with the exclusion of that, this is the only time I've ever felt serious wind in this country. People here will get fussed about what counts only as a "nice breeze" in Wellington. But today was the real deal, believe me.

I know eastern Tassie's on a cyclone warning. They're getting blown about even worse than us.

Fuck, check out the huge breezes hitting Tasman Island southeast of Hobart: http://www.bom.gov.au/products/IDT60...01.95986.shtml

Consistent all afternoon/evening too. 102km/h at 3:23pm and 113km/h at 7:30pm.
