    I’m in Melb SE and after the big downpour on Cup Day finally got around to getting the roof repaired

    So far so good, but a new issue is that all the crap that had been on the roof for the last 20+ years that’s was washed off the roof by the repair guys has obviously settled in the drains somewhere and things are taking a while to drain away

    But the inside of the house is dry

    Will be a good test, except little wind to with the rain which always finds any hidden leaks !

    They finished putting a complete new roof & guttering & most of the downpipes on my house on Tuesday. :) This will be a good test.

    Yes, rain with winds from all different directions is the killer though.
    Can force in water in the most unlikely places

    Sydney does it on a very regular basis. I've never been to Sydney when it hasn't poured.

    Quite right. We need to wash you back to where you came from.
