Tropical Cyclone Ita continues to move south, and is now out around Mareeba. Feeling like a wander, I slipped out for a little bit and wandered down to the beach. There's more leaf litter and small branches lying around the street.
Getting to the Beach, my eye was caught by the corrugated iron awning at the Trinity Beach Bar and Grill being buffeted by the winds, and decided to grab a short video of it before retreating back home. When metal starts threatening to fly you probably want to be inside.
We've had a couple of power fluctuations recently, so I'm no longer entirely confident we will keep power for the afternoon. My generator is ready to go.
