Cyclone Carlos day 2.

Hi there,

An update on tropical cyclone Carlos.
Things seems to get better, and hopefully Carlos won't come back.
In fact I even believe that he has already been downgraded to Ex-Cyclone by the BOM, and Darwin airport is reopen.

Still we had a lot of wind in Darwin last night, and here are a few photos first two from our back yard, then from the same park as yesterday, just to show you what the local playground looks like now.

Fallen pawpaw tree.

Bananas on the clothesline.

The playground.

The swings.

Broken down.

Remember the big tree from yesterday?

Last night the trees were falling in the opposite direction than on the previous day.

So even if so far our home has not suffered any damage, unlike around 30 home that got flooded along Rapid Creek (a suburb of Darwin) every things is wet or damp at the best, and every body start to show some signs of cabin fever...

But hey, it could be worse.
Have a good day,

Hi Anonymous,

If you have any question that could help you with your assignment, you are welcome to ask.

Or if ever you wanted to print a photo to go with your assignment, just let me know, and I could send you a high resolution file by email so you would get a better print than by lifting a pic from the web.

It is any way a good topic for an assignment.

Have a good day,
