We have had 300mm of rain in one night. A low pressure system crossed the coast above us causing wind squalls and heavy rain. Castle Hill is usually a barren rock in the middle of the city, but today it is shrouded in cloud and sprouting waterfalls where none previously existed.
On just the day to stay at home and sew, we had to go to a Civic Reception at the Mayoral Rooms for the Outbound Rotary Exchange students. There was some water lying on the road as we headed into town, but it wasn’t too bad. My daughter was interviewed by local radio, TV and newspaper, making her a multi-media star.
Look at that poise!
By the time we came home (an hour and a half later) small puddles had become wide lakes. I would have just stayed somewhere high and dry until it all dried up. My Pete, however, decided to be action man and just drove right through. Can you even see where the road is and where the footpath dips away?
I’m in the passenger seat, almost wetting my pants everytime we hit a hole in the road…
We did make it home, but I had to go and lie down.
