The cyclonic winds have been postponed…

20 Jun


For now at least.

Yesterday the Bureau of Meteorology was warning that overnight Sydney could be hit by winds of up to 100 kilometres per hour, but it hasn’t happened. Sure the winds are there, but something called an inversion layer has kept them several hundred metres above our heads, apparently.

See Sydney escapes storm battering.

However, it has been a wild and chilly night, especially in the Blue Mountains, as the picture above from the Sydney Morning Herald shows.

    Humans experience many storms, some of them unexpected!

    Very true, Daniel.

    Just a thought: why not say “people” instead of “humans”? I don’t quite know why, but I find that somehow less depressing. Perhaps it is because I know people are capable of much good. Not so sure about “humans” though… 😉

    An interesting distinction, Neil. Problem is that so many ‘people’ are ‘sheeple’!
