Re: Supreme SUNDAY@ the MSC

We got 227 mm (9" ish) of rain yesterday.

The back bedroom flooded as did the garage. Run off from local council land (via flooding to other properties).

Waiting on the insurance assessors.

Fires? They're pretty much out.

Re: First February FRIDAY@ the MSC

Rain simply hasn't stopped. 6" forecast for today (Saturday) and 8" for tomorrow. On top of the 6" yesterday!

Can someone lend me a snorkel and fins?

Re: Lame Duck THURSDAY @ the MSC

Morning All, Well the bushfire threat has eased somewhat here on the east coast of Oz. The reason is that pretty much the whole east coast is now under flood warning and severe weather warnings for storms. We're forecast to get over 6" of rain this afternoon. The stormwater systems simply will not c...

Re: It's February Saturday @ the MSC

The social committee of our HOA is organizing a Super Bowl watch party at the cabana tomorrow. The committee is supplying the food but everyone has to bring their own beverages. I only have bottled beer in my fridge and there's no glass allowed in the cabana. I really don't feel like going anywhere...

Re: It's February Saturday @ the MSC

Morning, Sorry to hear that Melon - I hope things start to look up. Still hot here. At 6 AM it was still over 85°F. I stole this from the Guardian Australia newspaper: https://i.guim.co.uk/img/media/56645af3dd7c0bb29859b1a19da74078bf7d80fb/0_0_4530_3020/master/4530.jpg?width=1140&quality=85&auto=for...

Re: A Hot Hot Hot Friday @ the MSC

Just a terrible/sad/fill-in-the blank scene there Rabbitz! Was watching the Aussie Open last night & they talked much about the rising heat & conditions. Praying some major relief can come your way! For us, relief is as far as Monday or Tuesday. (((Colin & Toni))) It's just hot here - fire danger t...

A Hot Hot Hot Friday @ the MSC

Hi All, I thought I'd open up early to beat the the heat. We're having what the bureau are describing as an "extreme heatwave" across the South East of Oz. Well over 100°F for the next few days (and nights). It's before 6.30 AM here and it's already over 86°F and 85% Relative Humidity. It could be w...

Re: Surf's Up! SATURDAY@ the MSC

This thread title has given me an earworm. Midnight Oil were an influential Sydney Surf Rock/Pub Rock band who first got together in the late 70's. They still do a few gigs here and there, which pretty much sell out/ You may not know of them, and you may not like them but I gotta get this earworm ou...

Re: Surf's Up! SATURDAY@ the MSC

Whaaat?? That makes me shake my head... As is our usual thing, we had made friends with a number of the locals (we just can't help ourselves) and asked about it. Apparently it isn't unusual for the Fijian-Indian kids to not to learn to swim. The Fijian kids are a different matter - just try to keep...

Re: Surf's Up! SATURDAY@ the MSC

So many people saying they can't swim. I know circumstance would dictate this but I simply cannot imagine life without being able to swim, the freedom and weightlessness it gives makes my soul soar. Some years ago, Mrs Rabz & I, were in Fiji. In the pool of the resort were a bunch of Fijian-Indian t...

Re: Surf's Up! SATURDAY@ the MSC

Kow a bunga, dudes! Well, good morning BN. Few of us indulge in water sports, but did you ever? surf? ski? scuba? boat? All of the above. Grew up on the beach, so surfing was a no brainer. My uncle has a ski boat, so we did a bit of that. Also paddled surf ski's - not sure if that is skiing or surf...

Re: Seat yourself THURSDAY@ the MSC

I've only ever been to one NHL game (unsurprising I suppose). It was Florida Panthers(? I think) at a rink not far from Ft Lauderdale. My employer at the time had a corporate box. The weirdest part was when the players stopped playing every so often and just milled around. I couldn't work it out. In...
