Going to be very wet the next few days! Sydney's annual average rainfall is only 1,200mm - we're predicted to get up to 500mm over 3-4 days. February average rainfall is 117mm - we'll get well past that! Despite all the rain we got today - the back yard is not flooded which it normally does after extended rain - all the rain has soaked right in to the parched ground, which was very dry and cracked. It will be interesting to see at what point the water starts pooling down the bottom of the back yard - that will mean we've reached saturation point. They've cancelled our Little Athletics championship event this weekend - which they swore would not get cancelled, even for rain. The road to the venue is already flooded (Wakehurst Parkway) and they are probably worried that the other entrance will flood as well. Anyone else affected by flooding around Sydney or the central coast / Newcastle / etc right now?
