We had the entire A/NZ Lotus team together in Sydney today for a team meeting. We were forced to take an early lunch when the fire alarms went off (false alarm due to leaking ceiling on the top floor causing problems with the fire detection system there) … of course our meeting was on the top floor too, so we had to walk down the fire escape all the way to the bottom.
Then this afternoon, the storms hit Sydney airport, with hail that apparently damaged planes (takes a BIG hailstone to damage a plane !!) – and closed the airport for quite some time. Most of our interstate attendees were flying out this evening.
The table below says it all really (data taken from the Qantas website – note the differences between “scheduled” and “estimated / actual” departure times !!)
