Default Melbourne storms

Stay safe southern friends!

Melbourne is going to get hit heavily over the next 3 days.

Thanks Kevin,
My gravel drive is somewhere in the bottom paddock! More rain tomorrow, at least my tanks are full.

Thanks, Kevin.

We've had about an inch of rain, maybe a little more. Very little sturm und drang so far. No water in our garage yet.

Seems to have been a slight over-prediction on the part of the BoM, thusly far.

^ LOL!

It's pissing down here for the last hour or so. Now around 40-50 mms (for HC ... ).

Hope your gravel sucks itself back up the hill when it dries out - thin chance and a fat chance ...

And it's bloody hard work getting it back up the hill again, even if possible at all.
