Whoa that is crazy, it looks a little fun but I'd be scared, I was surprised when I saw the date.


I wonder if that's by SAB?

It is in Sydney and Brisbane. I think SAB is spared.
koyannisquatsi1 is right in the middle of it, though!

It was in Sydney, I had nothing to do with it. In Melbourne it was just another run off the mill cold and overcast day

The article also mentions that "extreme weather affected the cities of Adelaide and Melbourne". I can say for a fact, that we got nothing that could be described as extreme, unless the idiot who wrote the article classifies cold, overcast and drizzle as "extreme". Melbourne missed out on anything exciting or newsworthy

Adelaide and Canberra on the other hand got huge storms, the "extreme" title is appropriate there.
