A mention for the firestorms which are currently raging in New South Wales, Australia. I didn't notice if they get given names or not.

Calm.
Before the storm?
I would hope the predictions were wrong but I’m one of a small group of coaches responsible for the cancellation of a cycle race tomorrow so I hope it is windy tomorrow.

Bloody windy down here on the South Coast...60 plus MPH gusts...as forecast. I live right on the beach so no protection at all.....Im at work and amazed that the wife has not been on the phone reporting garden and fence damage...like usual when we have any sort of a storm. Sea spray hitting the house (high tide just passed) is about it so far. According to the met the wind should start easing off here soon...down to about 40-50mph later.

It was so windy in Brighton earlier that I struggled to walk along the seafront and when I turned up a road perpendicular to the sea, I nearly got blown off my feet....
