Oh oh. The red dot is roughly us. So tropical cyclone on the way, then.
And this is what the seas are going to be like. Now, we're not near the coast, but I don't think I've ever seen a map as bad as this for swells since we've lived here. The darkest colour means 8m swells.
It's eerily calm just now, not a breath of wind and just light cloud, but we've been warned that this is on it's way for about 5 days now.
I've spent the morning staking things up in the veggie garden - dunno how much good it'll do, I know they're just vegetables but I'll be so sad if it gets trashed.
Off to buy some more bungy thingies to tie stuff down - we went through all the ones we had last night. I suppose it's best to prepare for the worst, then it might not happen. One good thing about this storm is it's supposed to pass very quickly and hopefully it'll be downgraded as well.
You can read more about it here HERE ( which is also where I got the photographs from)
Think I've gone off the name Wilma.
I'm joining in with Rhonda's On My Mind, today. Because it sure is!
