Another consuming interest of mine is the weather

And we are having lots of it here. I know it's not 18th century but at the moment I can think of nothing but Cyclone Yasi which is the biggest cyclone I can remember having seen, as it gathers intensity and bears down on the north of the state.

I daresay the 18th century had its fair share of extreme weather moments - snow etc. Which made the clothing easier to wear than it would be here. I can't imagine what it must have been like for my great grandmother in her corset and petticoats. A Queensland summer is not to be treated lightly. I expect there was plenty of fainting from it.

For now, I am radar watching and praying for divine intervention. Cyclone Yasi.
