    Ken you are right. But the BOM does not care. They are just thumbing their nose at you and me. So I’m putting the word out elsewhere especially on Facebook via the Weatherzone’s Facebook pages.

    I hope that this does two things :
    1: Increases the number of people who come here and find out how incompetent the BOM actually is.
    2: Thus break the BOM’s ‘spell’ over so many of my fellow Australians !
