looks like it might all be a false alarm.
which is good (for us) and bad news (for the dams)
i got a little bit rained on the way home - but hardly noticed it.

that wind was a bit weird for me. i think i felt it when it counted - going directly north up bowen bridge rd. awsm.

yes Pax you were right, it took me a little while to realise why it was so quiet on the ride to work :)
