After months of complete dryness we have had a great downpour. As soon as it started raining mark and I rushed all our pot plants onto the lawn to get some much needed water. Brisbane is now on Level 4 water restrictions, the highest water restrictions ever imposed on a capital city in Australia.
I remember my friend Rodney used to tell me in NZ that when it rains in Queensland, everyone sits on their balconies to watch it, at the time I did not believe him, but he was right!
Mark and I went to do our grocery shopping before, and as we walked out the supermarket it started to really bucket down, so I offered to run ahead an unlock the car. I rushined into the carpark and ran down one of the isles and could not see the car, I could not see it anywhere, I was about 4 isles away from where the car was and got soaked. Mark beat me to the car and got soaked waiting for me to come and unlock it.
