Just putting up a thread so that Australian W's remember to check in. It looks like things were pretty nasty and it's still a few hours until daylight yet. I got a video from friends in Cairns at 12:50 PST last night showing the palm trees bending over as the first major part of the winds hit. Be safe.
Thank you, another voice of reason in the barren wilderness. It would be much more impressive if the L.A. Times was showing Kerry ahead in 8 of the 10 swing states outside of the margin of error, rather than a generic national number.
