Chucking it down now in Caringbah and getting heavier. Flash bang as well, but not much at this stage.

Commute into the City is going to be interesting this morning.

Between 6am and 7:01am Sydney’s gauge went from 9mm to 84mm!!

Of the 75mm that fell in the hour, most came in the back half. Hopefully more to come (except now my roof is leaking).
we have four buildings in our complex, the other 3 have gutter guards ours does not. quote to do ours was astronomical. May get done now... run off from this event has cause flooding in our entry foyer.

On the train, let's see if we make it!

On the ferry .... still some empty seats.

I am glad I moved a few things off the deck because the rain must have been horizontal. The bloody wind blew down a 30yr old Banksia, one of two in our native garden part of the garden so I guess a garden Reno is now in order. The birds love those trees:( The fallen tree mashed a couple of flowering jelly bush as well.

The power is out

More importantly ...what is the weather outlook up near Cairns...
Authorities are indicating the dry storms will become a feature....

Fire authorities are apprehensive about fire storms raging that will not be contained fir many days.
Those max temps are breaking records .......and bats are dropping from their perches!!

55ml so far at Umina since 4am. Rain has lightened up for now but the wind is picking up. Should get heavier again later once the rotation starts pushing in from the South East.
