Prepare for wild weather
THERE is something I found fascinating about wild weather.
As much as I love the fluffy, good side of nature – lovely bushwalks, planting, exploring natural wonders – there is something about the destructive, bad side that lures me in.
It goes some way to explaining why I was devastated to learn I slept through Monday’s earthquake, but at the same time makes me excited about this tropical low.
The event’s ability to happen in the first place that attracts my fascination.
As fascinating as that may be the realist in me will recheck my emergency kits and plans, and you should too.
Be ready for power outages, have wet weather gear and emergency evacuation routes sorted, and don’t forget flooding.
With predictions of up to 300mm of rain today be ready for the worst nature has to offer.
Delay all unnecessary travel, watch power lines and trees, and first and foremost, stay safe.
Me and my NewsMail colleagues will keep all news as up to date as possible on our website, but if you have news from your part of town give me a call.
The more we share, the more we know, and the better our decisions can be.
