One of my sisters couldn't drive out of her street for a few days. There was a foot bridge that was accessible, so when they saw the road might become closed, they put a car on the other side of the creek and were then able to walk to that car and drive to work.
My other sister was stuck for a day, together with thousands of other people, on the western side of the Hawksbury River. But that was a nice excuse to not go out.
We had the deluge here in sydney on Thursday and it took my kids two and a half hours to get to school on an otherwise 15 minute bus trip! The traffic was terrible. I went to The Craft Group and arrived 45 minutes late. There were about half the ladies there, others not able or willing to fight the weather and traffic.

I do feel of course very sad for those who have had things damaged by the water on thursday but the lovely thing about a Sydney rain storm is that sometimes when it is over, like on Thursday, the sun shines brightly and the sky is a deep blue and things feel like they have had a good clean.
