Just thought I'd let those know who may not have heard, I got some bloooooody wild weather heading straight at me.
My landline phone is already down so I don't know if I'm going to lose this net line also.
Chris, Gerry, Craig & Shane, if you need to contact me do you still have my mobile number?
Looks as though things might get a bit interesting later tonight & as I live on one of the most exposed parts of the coast it could get really bloody rough.
