    Forecasting 100 to 150mm of rain in Melbourne over the weekend - could be interesting! !

    Sat arvo was a biggie for us. 58mm in about 45mins. I took a screenshot of the BOM radar at the time. We're in the middle of the black area. The wife was out, in the car at the time, and sustained some hail damage. The car that is, not her. We were getting low on water at the time. Needless to say, tanks are now full.

    Anyone near this?

    Rural fire crews are keeping a close watch on an out-of-control fire in the NSW Blue Mountains, which could threaten homes with strong winds predicted.

    Could be true, Diesel electric have diesel generators to provide electric motors with mumbo so the electric motors are probably close to track level.

    The old man was telling me a story this morning about trains and flooding from FNQ ( Burdekin, Babinda, Tully), apparently back in the day with the introduction of diesel/electric locomotives they didn't like water over the tracks because of the positioning of the motors etc, so to make things happen they got the old steam loco's out of decommission to tow them over flooded tracks / bridges.

    Fact or fiction, he is adamant

    Condolence to those families that have lost loved ones.

    But I can't understand why people drive through flood water's. Especially when you don't even no if the road is still there.

    I did it once and that was under a RFS (Rural Fire Service) escort, it was scary as you can't see the road. There was only 6" of water over the road.

    Hope all you guys are safe.

    Worst thing I got was a leaking roof which lead to a ceiling collapse.

    Totally agree, Off topic here, I've got 5 kids try and teach them right from wrong, if they listen it's a bonus, if not oh well you tried.

    I ain't stressing, unless it adversely affects me.

    For example 17 year old brought a car, within three days lost 3 points and smashed the passengers side door in hitting a pole , tried to help him, second hand door from the wreckers, frigging door is still sitting here a month later. Excuse, I can't be without a car for a few days to fix the sill panel, fit the door

    Get that god dam door off my patio I say.

    All of those deaths should not have happened. Those 2 cars that went off the bridge were stopped and told that the bridge was flooded but kept going.. That makes me angry..

    Interesting concept fordmad, manslaughter for causing the death of a volunteer or paid service provider to save someone due to unforeseen circumstances or there own stupidity.

    Thinking the only winners out of that would be the Lawyers.
