Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
I hope Freda is sound asleep and never sees this. Poor dear.

Gnu, I don't know what you think she was going through - she lives in Sydney, same as me. We live about 7 km apart. Our part of Sydney did get some of the highest rainfall - the suburbs further west didn't get as much. We both had the same conditions to contend with yesterday, except that she uses public transport, I drive - more risky for drivers, but probably drier.

Anyway, I've seen worse here. It was up in northern NSW that got it worse. Three people dead I believe.

Today as promised, it was sunny. I had to go out and try to repair the little home made greenhouse that we made a few weeks ago. Some tomato plants were blown over by the wind, and a couple of plant pots were tipped right over, but a tray of capsicum seeds that have just germinated were still okay.

And after all that, they are saying that the rainfall has hardly made any difference to the water level in our catchment dams. They say it would have to rain heavily and continuously for a week to be useful. We are still officially in a drought - that's Australia for you :-1
