Shut up JETPILOT! Good joke though. Made me laugh. A Criket ball is about the size of a tennis ball maybe smaller.

The storm was terrible,

I live in sydney and ive never seen anything like it.

Most houses were damaged and the demand for windshields has skyrocketed

Several planes were taken out of service 13 Qantas 6 ansett and a few international carriers but most if not all are still in service
