First We Have Bushfires, Now We Have Floods in Sydney ~

Hi Everyone,

Summer in Sydney this year has been a roller coaster for everyone. First, we have the massive bushfires that have been ground around our state and a few others and now we are having floods. It has forecasted this rain will hang around for another 8-10 days and keeping in mind this is only the first day, my local area is already flooded! Lots of info on different groups showing the damage done around the community and further up north, people have been told to leave by 10.30 pm as power will be cut and it will be too dangerous for SES to rescue these residents.

Showing you a snapshot of what has been coming on my Facebook feed for around the city. An eel was found at a local supermarket carpark .... hmmm I wonder what happened to it in the end. Trees have been whipped up and toppled over cars, houses, blocking roads everywhere. This rain has been compared to one that of 20 years ago and remember, this is only the first day! In the next 8-10 days, we will see more rain and thunder which I am not looking forward to. This season have been a bit crazy, from super hot to this downpour of rain. I hope things will settle down when autumn comes and we are back to our normal Sydney weather we love so much.
