    Absolutely howling wind and hosing down in Carnegie... just got back from Gippsland and saw some very impressive lightning strikes on the way.

    Looks like I'd better wait before heading out again :(

    Back in MEL ( with annual trips to the 604 )
    pretty steady rain here and Jnr LTB just arrived home and said that a tree came down in the lane from a neighbour's house and has blocked the garage door. Can't wait to fire up the chainsaw in the morning - that'll shake things up the Sackville Ward :D

    11th year of our annual street party here in Aspendale - never once has it rained.
    Well somebody paid us back for all those good years.......cyclonic wnds and rain rolled in about 8:45pm and 50 people were scrambling to pack down/remove a multitude of gazebos, folding chairs, Eskies, BBQ, plastic wine glasses, chips, dogs, gas lights!

    At least I have not have as much to drink as last year - the photographic evidence will be much kinder.

    I'm not sure id wanna be up there tonight in the yurt on the side of the hill!

    Got caught in Brunswick in it where it got nasty. Been in Carlton now and it just hammered for half an hour. Still coming down nicely in the city and I'd be feeling rather damp LOL

    Been raining out here for a couple of hours now of heavy steady rain, no light show or thunder though. Good totals in the SE now and Gippsland will cop it overnight. A beautiful night to watch some TV and listen to the pouring rain.

    We're fine, just some water through the ceiling.

    A 2 year old boy died last night when a tree smashed through the house he was in. :( Horrible.

    Same here. Feb 2015 for us east of Melbourne has turned out great.
    We've totalled around 90mm for the month!
    Very little extreme heat and although humid at times, that is to be expected with all the rain.
    All in all been a ripper compared to some Feb's we've had recently

    Fairly consistent across the metro area then it seems.
