Here comes Hamish

My fellow North Queenslanders. I urge you. Buy milk. It won’t be here tomorrow. And by tomorrow I mean next week.

Here comes another cyclone. Hamish. Yet another pansy name. Sorry to any Hamishes that might be offended – but it really doesn’t inspire fear and trepidation.

But it does mean “he who supplants”. So do these other names. Cyclone Diego sounds much more ominous.
