Right now it's pouring here in lower South Australia, some 4000km away from where Cyclone Yasi made landfall we are all coping big rains. Virtually right across the country it's raining hard. To put that into perspective...Australia is over 5500km from East to West(3200miles) and some 4000km from North to South (2500miles)and it's raining over most of it.
Yep, it was a big storm!
It's not so bad here, being near the sea there's little likelihood of serious flooding since the water will run straight into the nearby marshes and to the sea..but even so, my yard is completely under water just now...just an inch! But an inch can make all the difference...so my Ex-wife used to say!
It's been 100% humidity and most uncomfortable for several days now but that was broken late today when the rain started..it's still hot and rather nice to go out walking in the rains but a little cooler now.
I had coffee at the beach with daughter/son-in-law and all the kids and friends late today and we really enjoyed the pouring rains, we all got saturated and loved it!
