No, these aren't photos of Brisbane. This is Melbourne, after 100+mm of rain dumped on us in the past 24 hours. Major highways and freeways are closed, several railway lines are out of service and parts of Melbourne had to be evacuated last night. Tropical cyclones Anthony and Yasi are sharing the love.....
Apparently there's more to come today. We're good here, just very wet. Thank goodness for living in an elevated area. Many people have serious damage to their homes though, as our storm water systems are simply not designed to cope with this amount of rain in such a short time.
I plan to be back later today with a post. If we don't get washed away in the meantime.
