Cyclone Daryl closes in

The second cyclone of the year is set to shake the palm trees and rattle tin roofs up in the Kimberly region as Daryl slowly puffs out his chest and gathers intensity.

Is it just me, or is two cyclones in the same region within a month a slightly odd phenomena? And why is it so bloody humid in Perth these days? The weather's almost as bad as Sydney and come to think of it, so's the freeway peak hour traffic!

Back to Daryl, now what sort of name is that? All I can think of is Daryl Sommers bearing down on the coast and I wouldn't wish that on anyone.

I recall the great man touting for the tourism industry up that way with the slogan, 'you'll never ever know, if you never ever go'. Has a certain harsh irony to it now doesn't it...
