Worst storms in 30 years

Wow, it rained down all day on Friday and Saturday. The wind was howling and unceasing. It was the most incredible weather I've seen in a long time and boy was I glad that we were safe and warm(-ish) at home.

The news was awful - a bunch of people died in the floods and winds, including a family whose car was swept away when a road collapsed. Absolutely incredible that it happened - I can't help feeling shocked and horrified by it.

And to top it all off, hardly any of the buckets of water fell where we really need it, in the catchment areas of our dams. It was such a shame to see all that good drinking water come down and know that it is just washing out to sea and not being harvested in any way.
