The weather bureau have told us to batten down the hatches over the weekend. They have forecast some wild weather for us. Winds are expected to get up to 90 kilometers per hour and around 50mm of rain to fall. The temperatures will also plummet. The waves could get as high as 10 metres on the south coast.
A good weekend for staying indoors with the heater on and some good DVD's. Tomorrow afternoon I have got a scrapbook class and then we will most probably go out for dinner with Robyn and Bob. Sunday will definitely be a day for inside as that may be the worst of the days.
There have already been reports of trees down, one on a car and one through the bedroom of a house and some localised flooding. Now they are saying that there could be thunderstorms and hail as well.
Thank God for our State Emergency Services (SES) workers. These guys and gals are out in all in kinds of weather helping residents with leaking roofs and general cleanup of areas where it's needed.
