The worst storm in decades *was* pretty fierce. Driving through it with 10m visibility and debris over the road was, um, interesting. If we’d known at the time how bad it was we probably wouldn’t have set out.

The worst hit areas are only a few km from where we live and we didn’t even lose power. Lucky.

It’s hardly stopped raining since. Pity the order for a rainwater tank is still sitting on the kitchen table :-(
