    well folks it's officially here in Oz, it's storm season we what a ripper it has and gonna be. We are tipped to get 4 cyclones this season, the storms are gonna get worse the works. As I'm typing this post we have a ripper going through were I am, I've had to do this post twice already cause our power has gone out, anyway I hope our friends down south are finding it easier than what it's like up here. Anyway I'll leave you all with a few pictures, all of these pictures have been taken at night so I'll leave you all wondering...

    Keep your head down Scooter.

    I'm with you 109. As long as it isn't dangerous (tornados, hurricanes, etc) I love a big ol thunderstorm.

    Thunderstorms are the best! Well....a good electrical storm is better, less rain makes it easier to go out and take pics! But yeah, the only down-side to bad weather is that you really *should* turn your computer off....

    Best of luck, Scooter! Batten the hatches and full speed ahead, you'll come out on the other side!

    Good luck Scooter. They called for a couple of major hurricanes to hit the US this year and we only took one. Experts get it wrong all the time. Hope they do in your case as well.

    Good luck up there in the tropics mate! As for us down here, we could do with a good downpour! Silly drought.

    Too right Andy.

    Though we have some rain in the last week, its no where near enough.

    Stage 4 water restrictions for Melbourne soon, thats 155litres per person per day.
