Meet Tropical Low (potentially Cyclone) Dylan.

Dylan is getting himself organised up in the top right hand corner of Australia, but at this stage it looks increasingly unlikely we’ll be entertaining him in Mackay. Having said that, we’re expecting 120kmph winds and lashing rain, combined with full moon and a king tide, so a little light flash flooding is also on the menu.
Hunkering down for the duration is the order of the day. Catch up on the movie watching, do a bit of baking, and probably a lot of sewing – assuming the winds don’t bring down the power lines. And the phone tower. If they do, it’s back to handsewing by lamplight. How very Victorian! But it’ll pass the time.
Cyclone landfall is tomorrow morning early. After that, it’ll still be ugly for a while, but the worst is over, and the front heads inland where they badly need all that spare water.
Off to the sewing machine to do some more on the Tree of Life. Another post later on that.
