Senior Forecaster Scott Williams told 3AW there would be “fairly severe” weather in Melbourne until the middle of the afternoon. “Be prepared, batten down the hatches,” he said.

Quite nice here in Eagle Farm Brissy :)

Last time you came to Qld, just before your arrival, Brisbane was hit with the biggest hail storm in 3.5 million years.
This time, just before your arrival, a few towns were flattened by a cat 5 cyclone, with a couple of others left flooded. Just before you show up.

I see a pattern, and it's not a good one. Do you really need to visit Qld? If so, can you please leave the Shit weather down there?

With enough horse power, sheer ignorance and a total lack of respect for your vehicle, you'll get through....

Working in Child's Rd with the Sheriffs and we had the best light show. A friend of a collegue rang us when the storm hit his place, It gave us enough time  to get packed up and jump into our Highway Patrol cars to sit it out.

We had the light show touch down in a gum tree & cause a small grass fire . With the wind blowing it was tricky to put the wet stuff on the hot stuff 30 ft up a tree .  We got it in the end , then home  :cheers:

is the gum tree saveable or do you need the mobile tree removal team from Northern Melbourne to help you out?
