    Can't see anything on sat maps. This mornings NSW weather 'bomb' was cyclonic in nature though.

    Meanwhile ... up here in lannaland we had a very cold 22c morning, blue skies and 32 by noon, currently 26 at 6pm. Doesn't get much better.

    There are valid reasons why I spend my winters in Chiang Mai. Back home where I live on Vancouver Island it is a pissing down cold rain and all the rivers are blown out with mild flooding. No fishing opportunities.

    Ive never heard of a tornado hitting south Thailand in my 10 years here.

    In fact a strong wind is something to comment on.

    Hard to fathom really , considering warm seas are on both sides.

    Most 'big' weather seems to be generated above PI , then 'tracks' and loses intensity.

    Honestly , South Thailand is either hot , or wet and hot.

    More breezes would be good ..55

    Those were waterspouts, quite common at sea during hot unstable weather conditions. I've sailed thru many waterspouts in relatively small frontal squalls, scary yes, but not as dangerous as real tornadoes. More like a willy willy. Lol

    Have seen one of those water spouts off Phuket and a few around Sydney over the years.


    One week in Oz....

    Well they are watching one form, IF it does it will be Tuesday/Wednesday so you may just get out before it. Just keep an eye on the reports, don't get side tracked by Pussy 55555555

    Wow...great timing been home an hour 55

    Managed to dodge the bushfires on cape york after flying over them last friday and thinking i wouldn't be going anywhere.
    The strong wind died down overnight and took off early saturday and drove through many fires but there wasn't a puff of wind so all good.
    Also avoided the tropical rain depressuion that was due to hit this arvo.

    From Lakeland along the Mulligan Hwy to Innisfail through Atherton,Mareeba,Millaa Millaa and Melana was probably the prettiest drive i've done in Oz.

    The road to Weipa is a doozy...much of it at 20kms/hr...320kms dirt of 570kms...shook the sh1t outta me and the little UD 55

    Cairns would be the other side of the mountains in the distance...

    Glad your back safe, i wasn't going to be coming to rescue you

    Fack the bush fires up between Rocky and Gladstone etc are massive....areas burnt out are bigger than Belgium!!

    AND it is far from over, only just keeping it from homes, all stock and pastures are gone.

    Had a scorcher today here in Kalgoorlie, followed by a storm that nearly blew the pub away. I could have ended up with a free flight back to Perth. All died down in minutes. Scorcher again tomorrow.

    Speaking of scenic drives. There are roads south of Perth, where greener pastures and wineries start, that twist and winde through the hills and leave you with views of torquis waters around each bend. Some of the views of the water can make first timers gasp. They're so green and pop up at the apex of hills so suddenly when you're not expecting them.

    Anything worth doing is worth overdoing. Moderation is for cowards.

    Another nice warm day in Chiang Mai, but not insufferable. I can ride my bike around town with just a light cotton shirt. I just have to keep it upright so I can avoid any more road rash. I have to keep reminding myself to NOT to ride like a Thai in traffic.
