Last night’s storm created floods in the suburbs just north of us. Over 100mm of rain fell in some places!
I don’t think I’ve ever seen the flood marks from the creek up so high, this morning every flat bit of bike track was awash with debris or mud. All the councils have just finished beautifying the parklands with pine-chips and mulch, so as a result, there are now huge piles of pine-chips and mulch washed off every garden bed, deposited in “challenging” ways on the track.
Glenferrie road was underpass just passable. Tooronga road was a slimy, slippery mud pit.
There were a few very large trees floating in the Yarra, and lots of rafts of plastic bottles and stuff migrating down to the sea.
Three of the seven lightning photos from last night sort-of worked.
