Alarmist Talk

Some of our friends are a bit concerned about us flying, after me publishing alarmist comments about the approaching tropical cyclone Ului, which was, and still is, heading towards the Queensland coast of Australia.

In fact we are now in the Northern hemisphere - just, because Singapore is marginally north of the Equator.

The latest news of the cyclone is here:

It has weakened to Category 2, although according to the report it is still producing winds of 165 kms per hour. And it seems to have veered north and on that course will miss major population centres (as I understand the geography).

There are 57 days to go to the start of VBW. Interestingly, it was '57 when I first visited Singapore.
