  • Batten Down the Hatches

    From BOM

    A vigorous westerly airstream associated with a deep low south of the state is expected to cause widespread damaging winds to 110 kilometres per hour that could result in damage to property. In isolated areas of the Southwest district and adjacent South Coastal district locally destructive gusts in excess of 125 kilometres per hour may cause significant damage or destruction of property.
    Severe winds over the Southwest and Lower West Districts are expected to extend eastwards during the day, reaching Esperance in the evening. Showers and winds over the Perth Metropolitan area will be at their peak until early evening.

    Heavy surf conditions are forecast for coastal parts and some beach erosion is possible. The very large swell should peak on Friday night.

    Cape Leeuwin recorded a wind gust to 117 kilometres per hour at 8:44am and Cape Naturaliste 109 kilometres per hour at 8:43am.

    In the Perth Metropolitan area, Bickley recorded a wind gust to 96 kilometres per hour at 12:08pm and Rottnest Island 96 kilometres per hour at 12:09pm.
    FESA State Emergency Service [SES] advises people to secure loose objects, move vehicles under cover and stay inside away from windows when severe winds develop. If caught outside find shelter away from trees, powerlines, storm water drains and streams. Boat owners should make sure their boats are securely moored. If driving through heavy rain slow down and turn your lights on or if visibility becomes low pull over and park until it passes.

      “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa

                Anyone think they can get a postie to exceed the highest predicted wind speed(125km/h)? I know of a good hill with the wind to your back
                Success is nothing more then taking advantage of an opportunity.
