Good stuff, flush the Todd right out. I suppose a little rain would be welcome there.

Good time to be at Ayres Rock.

Hi Hairy, Wish we were at the Rock but not in our tent!!!!!!
Good luck with your house . Perhaps people could take shoes off or what a mess through the house.
You have to wonder if this excess rain is trying to keep you there?
Rain in the Desert is beautiful and always welcome but gosh you certainly getting it all at once at the moment!
Take care.
Bye, Ma (Sally).

Daughter was speaking to wife before and its been hammering down in Darwin and appears to be some lightening as she says the air is electrified (hairs are standing up like static electricity).

May not be the day to be digging the ute out doug.

Thanks for the photos. It was running when I was there on Tuesday night but not that strongly. Keep your gumboots handy.
