What the fuck? I've been out bush for the past two days.. I should probably watch the news. WTF? I know parts of QLD was flooded, we were too a little. Unreal rain this past month up my way. Like, nonstop.

Yeah, It was sooo bad! Biggest hale stones I have probably ever seen in my life. Our house didnt get flooded thank god, but all Northlands was flooded and apparently heaps of people were stealing from the shops.

It was so cool; I was in the tram, and I heard a big knock on the floor...a hail the size of cupcake came into the tram from a window. I then closed the window nearest to me. Then all of the sudden more came down, and for some reason there was this lady sitting behind an open window..and she chose not to close it :help:

Anyways, I got off in Unimelb, and the rain came. I was drenched within seconds. It was crazy. I felt like I was in Survivor. :yeah:

It was pretty big, Melbourne CBD doesn't really have the proper infrastructure through drains and stuff to deal with this.

I was in the car and the hail was pelting down, thought it was going to crack the windscreen. Good thing I was at the shopping centre near a multilevel car park.

Yeah at 2.30pm the sky darkened in an instant and the winds and rain was insane.

I went out late at night and everything had cleared in the city by then.

Yesterday had the biggest hailstones I have seen in my life :eek:

I was driving when the hailstones came and I was so worried my windscreen would crack! There was nowhere to go undercover where I was, thankfully my car was not damaged.

The storms today don't seem to be that bad.

Can I say that I am shocked that after like 30 minutes of heavy rain, I can't believe the public transport system shat itself.

I had to go to a friend's party later that night and it took an hour and a half with a combination of cab, walking, and a replacement bus for the train to get to Windsor which is like normally a 15 minute cab ride for me. RIDICULOUS!
