Wow ... I've never seen anything like it before ... about 115mm of rain since last night! The backyard was totally flooded and the road outside looked like a river, so much so that we couldn't leave the property to go to the new house. Fortunately the rain has stopped and the water has subsided so we can move out today after all. I'm so relieved as living in limbo between two houses has started irritating me. The flood water canals near the new house are apparently flowing strongly ... kind of like Amsterdam in the outback! The temperature is below 30 degrees ... a first since we have been here and what a relief although it is very humid.
