    Just gone dead still here in Sydney (northern beaches).
    Could be the eye of the storm passing over?

    Just as I post, the wind picks up again. Conditions certainly have eased for the moment.

    So about 3.30pn today we swung into Bunnings North Parramatta.

    Posted this pic on facebook saying "it must be bad out of the carpark at bunnings is empty on a Sunday"

    [​IMG]

    Anyway we were in and out in 10mins....

    Little did we know that the little canal at the entrance had broken over the bridge and it was almost impassable (we were in the pajero)

    Logged on at lunchtime. I observed the highest poo flows I've ever seen at my plant. Granted 99% will be water.

    I can't disclose how it's coping, but I will say, don't go swimming for the next couple of days. You will have unwanted friends. :D

    High tide, another rain cell coming in and it is coming down hard with wind picking up on the northern beaches. Not going to be much beach left tomorrow and flooding in Narrabeen set to get worse. An interesting night ahead and good to be up high.

    At North Curly and while the last sentence is something I can agree with we are still copping it. Garage flooded, water egress all over, pain to say the least.

    Ah, that explains the brown colour of the ocean :)

    I wonder if those cliff top houses are getting unwanted friends plastered on their windows.

    Amazing stuff. Those homes have cliff-face sewer discharge. So rust would be the least of their issues.

    What? They Shit directly into the water? Sydney Water have alot to answer for. When we first moved to the Northern Beaches and you could look out from the headland at North Curl Curl and look at the brown plume flowing from North Head it was disgusting. Cannot understand why Shit is not not treated and pumped west as useable water.

    Actual levels in the lake have dropped except for the area where it meets the ocean. Waves reforming in Lake and breaking over Ocean St, tide is on way out so long as rain stays away the worst is over.

    Mate it's not Sydney Water. Residents won't allow streets to be dug up to connect them. Their lawyers are the heaviest hitters in Oz.

    Back on topic. Heavy rain just returned after let up for a couple of hours in Eastern Suburbs.

    If something gets bowled over it will be interesting to see of Council let it be rebuilt. Then who'd insure it.
