Wow. My brother is in the Army in Melbourne. He said they went out on a bivouac or whatever, and the biggest storm in 120 years or something landed on top of them must have been fun.
Haha the one form inside the car was priceless The water is like overflowing the vehicle....BUT they desided to take a picture. Well look on the bright side of things Melbourne might be the next venece (Y) and we all know that chicks fall for gondula rides :shifty:

I was out sailing on Western Port (A bay near Melbourne) the day before the storm. The wind picked up so suddenly, me and my mate were blown about 3 miles off course in what seemed like the space of 5 minutes.
We were looking at having to sail into the shore and drag the boat back by hand. No way we would have been able to row back into that wind.
Lucky for us some Fishermen in a motor boat came by and threw us a tow-line. Even then it took nearly half an hour to tow us back. Damn! I used to revel in the yachtsman's distain for motor boats (stinkboats). Now I've completely lost the moral high ground
It was quite a storm, that's for sure. Boom, Crash, Flash all night, and the sound of breaking trees was almost continous. I reckon that was the 50 year storm Patrick Swayze's character was on about in Point Break.

That had huge amounts of rain from what i heard. its a different stroy in brisbane , hot hot and a little bit hootter.

I live in Melbourne and the rain did not stop for a second that day, it was ridiculous. It poured for over 24 hours, the lake near my house had flooded the roads nearby about a foot deep. Lucky our house wasn't flooded too!
The iron crowned is getting closer,
Swings his hammer down on him,
Like a thunderstorm he's crushing,
Down the Noldor's proudest king.
Under my foot, so hopeless it seems.
You've troubled my day, now feel the pain.
