Twenty-five million in insurance claims, and you call yourselves tough and hardy Aussies. Whadda bunch of wimps. It aint a storm until interest payments on the government loans for rebuilding is greater than 25 million. Wait a few weeks and we'll show you what a storm is.

Wimps, are we? Wait a few weeks and you'll show us what a storm is?

*trust me everybody, it’s a bluff*

I’ll see your storm mythusmage, and raise you Tim-the-prophet Flannery’s hell-forbidden, underground Australian desert geothermal climate change Armageddon!!!

And a spilt beer! You don’t know what you’re dealing with.

*um, feeling a little bit nervous now the chips are in... maybe our steely-eyed furriner is gambling on a different kind of storm.*

Careful, Splice...
You have no idea of Mythus' power and position....

Mythus, this was unusual for here... this amount of damage from a storm. But it's OK now. Kevvie's here, he'll save us!

Kae, don’t trade me so cheap, babe!

*holds gaze and squints. Slides Kevin Rudd into the pile…*

Mythusmage, I’m all in. We can do stupid with the best!

Yes, just as well, that he was on his way home, he'd done a Whitlam otherwise.

That explains why everyone in the suburbs affected by the storm are still looking scared/concerned.

Heard Kevin on the news tonight describe the storm damage in his usual restrained manner as "an assault on our souls".
