Forbes 2011, day 9

I guess it was cancelled due to wind and gray conditions. It was flyable, maybe borderline taskable. I spent the day at the coffeshop, working on preparing some material for the CIVL plenary, and had a nice run in the rain in the park along the river and lake Forbes. The park smelled strongly eucalyptus from the trees, intermingled with rotting fish from the floodings.

In Queensland its going from bad to worse, with close to 100 people missing in the floods and massive rainfalls. We are lucky here to just have to cancel a day of hanggliding, while 1000 km to the north people are drowning.
