Okay, so that storm we had the other night? The one that trapped me in my house meaning I couldn't go to the gym? (Yeah, and I was ALL kinds of broken up about THAT!) It gave us a whopping 87.0mm of rain. EIGHTY SEVEN MILLIMETRES IN ONE DAY... And 86.6mm of that was after 5.30pm... The creek down the street from me was a couple of millimetres away from bursting its banks, which would have been interesting.
We're nowhere near as badly off as Wagga Wagga, where the Murrumbidgee River is at 9.6 METRES and rising, but it's been a pretty intense start to summer, that's for sure. Here's hoping the rain clears up soon, or I really WILL be investing in a pair of gumboots!
