A wild and woolly beginning to the year!

The first day the studio reopens and we have cyclonic events to deal with! What a crazy time of year it is. I remember a few years ago that we suffered worse problems with the floods of 2011, and many students were forced to cancel their lessons.

Of course, I am understanding about these natural acts of weather, and if a student has rung me to warn me that travelling to their lesson could be tricky, then luckily I have time in February to reschedule their lesson. Just call me to check the best option.

Right now, in Norman Park, the sun is shining again, the wind has died down, and it is steamy and hot. The soggy lawn is starting to dry out and we have a clear path to the front door. As far as I know there are no impediments for people traveling on the roads today from all areas, although I am aware that people have been warned to stay off the roads generally. We have clothes on the line and I am looking forward to getting some of our dirty, sodden work clothes clean and dry! Everything seems to get mouldy and damp in this weather.

Remember, if it seems really too dangerous for you to drive on the roads today, please ring ahead and we’ll make some other plans.
