So this is my final night in Queensland for this trip. Members from the other side of the family tree left before lunch and are still apparently struggling to make it home to Sydney, delayed due to some stupidly violent storm activity that's seen their plane rerouted to Newcastle where they were decanted into buses bounded for Sydney airport before somehow, I guess eventually finding taxis home along with the other hundreds of other passengers. Ah the joys of a three hour journey turned into a 10 to 12 hour epic, eh?
Thankfully the forecast for Melbourne is much more benign. "A few showers clearing." it says. "Min 15. Max 21." That all sounds perfectly civilised. I always thought Sydney was much too flashy for me.
