the weather started getting rough (tiny ships were tossed)

Goodness me it’s been belting down over there.

Yesterday Rotto Bloggo was driving down Stirling Highway and we couldn’t see the beautiful island because of the rain.

Rottnest had 21mm of rain in the 24 hours to 0900 today. It had 1.4mm in the half-hour until 1000.

And it’s been windier than Blazing Saddles. Gusts of more than 80kph earlier this morning, and a monstrous 111kph yesterday afternoon around 3.30.

We hope no quokkas were blown away.We can’t wait until tomorrow week, when we’re playing Scrabble and drinking while looking out at the wind-whipped water.
