Wow, that was a wild weekend! That rain dance worked, ’cause torrential rain floods our dry town. Combine the wet with gale-force winds and 10-foot waves you’ve got some interesting conditions.
Yesterday: totally howling onshore at Bondi, if you sought refuge in the harbour you would have scored offshore, good overhead waves with 1,000 others.
The 4-day total for Sydney’s super-soaker – 400mm. Is this salubrious rain hitting our water catchments? Hell – yes! Warragamba Dam is now at 61.8 per cent. It was at 47 per cent this time last week. That’s insane. I hope the level gauges aren’t busted.
SES had 10,000 calls for help. An enormous tree fell across O’Sullivan Road (Rose Bay) as we were heading home last night. Wild!
As I punch out this post, it looks like things are calming down and I see sunlight. Time to surf. :: uge
