well looks like predictions years ago that Sydney's climate will become more tropical are coming true.
we had a storm come over at about 4 30 this arvo and I can't remember rain that heavy ever.
I spent all day in the front yard digging and planting. I finished with the storm approaching. I rushed down to the nursery to get some more bags of soil and made it home just as it started raining. Parked the car under the carport, opened the garage and bam. The rain was beyond torrential. I stayed in the garage because the rain was coming in horizontally right at the house. If I tried getting into the house thru the rear sliding door, the room would have been filled with water.
All the gutters were over flowing and didn't take long for the box gutter in the garage to overflow and start pouring into the garage. Lasted about 25 minutes.
I've got a pool and it holds 30000 litres of water. More than an inch was added.
Luckily earlier in the day I'd plugged in my VB Can fridge and put beers in it (not VB). So I rode out the storm with nice cold beer
