and by crikey have we had a bit of that!
120km/hr winds in Hobart, much the same on the West Coast (blew Mr Tasmania home from the Pieman River!), and just bedlam in Burnie ... was SO much fun driving home in a very small light Japanese car in winds gusting 50 - 80km/hr! And, to finish that drive off, winding down the long road to home under the 40 metre high (no exaggeration) eucalyptus trees .... freaky!
