And it’s arrived. Isn’t it funny how we tend to get heavy rain just in time for the Canberra home-time derby? All the crazed tailgaters get to ply their trade with increased dedication and skill.

Not much action down here so-far, but the Illawarra area is copping huge falls today and highways/train lines are already cut. Report of 154mm today at Harold Park, SES are evacuating people as flood waters rise around Wollongong.
