How come there is no weather warnings/tracking map on the NT BOM page when it's supposed to be making landfall here on Sunday? Only shows on WA page :?
Not that it worries me, driving to Alice Springs tomorrow dammit. Love a good blow. :surf:

Nice pic Lats

Hang on mate, :titanic:

should provide a bit of wet stuff for us up here eh!
If there is water and it holds fish, then it is fun trying to fool them into eating what you offer!!

Especially when you can see them!

My boss and afew VIP customers went out on the new Dundee charter boat this morning. They got around o the Perons and the skipper diicided to turn around and pull the pin. They were back on land by 11am and didn't wet a line.

Wasn't sure if they got a refund as I only got a text for them. They are spewing cause they didn't cancell this morning or made prior arrangement last night that the trip was called off. The book to stay the night so they been drinking cans since 11am.
