Wow, what a wind last night! It was one of the times when I was wishing for a recording anemometer. Assorted crashes and bangs seemed to indicate that various neighbourly tin-sheds and garbage bins had come loose, this morning there were large trees down in all the parks, both near home and Monash.

Dinner with señor Marko — the poor lad was exhausted — the wind yesterday and today meant that the SES1 had over 3000 jobs to do, removing fallen trees from anything and everything, and running around putting roofs back on.
