Thread Name: What's the weather like where you are?
Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
after four years of drought, our dams are nearly empty and the Premier of our state is wondering how to continue to provuide drinking water to us sydneysiders. so it finally starts to rain. and rain. and rain. and rain. It is coming down in troughloads outside as I write, pouring off the gutters and drenching the street. there are floods further north and a gale warning has been issued. The wind is coming up now - its getting wilder and wilder - imagine a huge drenching downpour, and then triple it!
this is typical in this part of australia - its all or nothing - long harsh months and years of unremitting heat and drought, and then a maniacal downpour leading to flooding, trees coming down, cars being tossed along flooded road (two deaths already)...
what's the weather like where you are?
