Rain damage D4D? Not good. We could hear the wind raging though the mountain before it hit us. Great light show though.

Heavy rain for us a lot of the night. Inam doing the corporate Triathlon today and my swim leg is no longer on as the weather has blown out the course and the stormwater run of would be a mess. After a couple of months swim training I now have to do a run, bugger

Yeah, I think the wind dislodged some loose tiles and in the water came :(

EDIT - In the light of day I can see that the wind got under a piece of flashing and dislodged it taking a tile with it, hence open hole in roof and wet ceiling :'(

Agreed Rumpig, that was the wildest I have ever seen the wind, the rain was horizontal.

We had half a 12 year old ornamental pear tree come down in the back yard. Not so ornamental any more.
