Compliments of the Season to All
By Alan Hargreaves-Oracle on Dec 24, 2004
Well, it's Christmas Eve here in Sydney. We're about to head home. We're taking the kids out to Carols by Candlelight at The Entrance this evening. We've gone to this one for the last few years and it's always been an enjoyable experience.
Then it bundle them into bed (leaving out the lemonade and chocolate cake for Santa and the carrot for Rudolph) and the looks of wonder and joy tomorrow morning as they open their gifts.
We're doing Ribs on the Barbecue and I'll be opening a few bottles of the home brew (and bottling the next lot).
The weather forecast for today and tomorrow looks ominous...
IDN10031 FORECAST FOR NSW Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology New South Wales Issued at 11:42am on Friday the 24th of December 2004 For remainder of today and Saturday WARNINGS: Moderate flood warning for Namoi River at Goangra and downstream. Minor rural flood warning for Lower Gwydir River Valley. Minor to moderate flood warning for Barwon/Darling River upstream of Bourke. Moderate to major flood warning for Darling River downstream of Bourke. NEW SOUTH WALES: Very High Fire Danger for the Central West Slopes and Plains, Riverina, and Lower Western until midnight Friday. Scattered showers and thunderstorms in the eastern half of the state today. Scattered showers and thunderstorms in the northeast Saturday, clearing showers in the southeast. Dry in the west. Warm to hot northwest to northeast winds ahead of south to southwest change moving through the southeast today reaching central coast in the evening and Queensland border by tomorrow afternoon. This forecast is issued daily at 05.15, 1120 and 16.30. For more information visit the Bureau web site at http://www.bom.gov.au
I hope we don't get washed out tonight, and I certainly hope the kids get to play with their gifts outside tomorrow (and I'd really rather not be outside working the barbecue in the rain).
Anyway, Monday and Tuesday are public holidays in New South Wales, so I won't be back until Wednesday.
Merry Christmas to all.
