How the **** do they work out the names of these things? Cyclone Tinkerbell will be next.
How about cyclone Imgonna****youup... or something like that.
Yeah what he said ,Not quite Old.School.Hero, each meteorology region has a list of names, based on their region and starting at A thru to Z. Depending on where they are up to decides the name. They also take into account the size and ferocity of the cyclone so they can jump names. As Yasi started outside our region, we did not name it. To give a bit of perspective on its size, I read that when it makes landfall, it has the potential to make Larry look like a summer storm.
I feel for the folks of Queensland, they can't take a trick at the moment.
On another note, I like the sound of Cyclone Truckster.
We have only gotten the power back on in Airlie Beach a couple of hrs ago.
Ive been installing PCs with a headlamp on again.
It now looks like Yasi is going to hit on Wednesday arvo. Bugger. Thats when I am supposed to fly out. If Im lucky I will get stuck up here and will get to take heaps of cool pics.
