Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
the weekend has arrived & rain falls everywhere.

email I wrote yesterday -
Last night the heavens opened at 2.20am & as I was still listening to Niagara falling at 3, I got up - & the rain kept falling yesterday & is still falling today.

Yesterday I went to an 80th birthday lunch & carried my raincoat as it wasn't raining when I arrived, & had stopped by the time I left! Lucky me, folks who left at different times ran the gauntlet of heavy rain, & my driver had to avoid fallen branches in the carpark & on the road.

100s ordered to evacuate & 1000s call for help as wild weather intensifies check out the pics including lots of twitter pics

The rain covers most the the east coast of Australia & as always happens State Emergency Services have so far rescued 77 drivers who drove thru flood waters, contrary to official advice.
