Well after 4 years of drought we are finally getting copious amounts of rain. Far more than we want all at the one time. And it appears that even with all the water that fell, Canberra is still officially in a drought.
On Tuesday night 28 Feb 2007, Canberra city was hit by a deluge which resulted in the Council having to get bobcats in to clear the roads.
There was a wild storm with lots of hail. Many office buildings were flooded and staff were unable to go into work until the areas were cleaned up. A number of buildings are still flooded.
Fortunately out in the Tuggeranong area, south of the city, there was only relatively light rain.
Here is one of the bobcats on Wednesday morning, clearing up after the storm.
