Just overcast here in Adelaide. Thu-Fri might get the usual third-week-of-January-rain. Then the heat will start.

Thank you kindly sir :thumb
It’s been and gone our Melbourne rain, and caused a bit of flash flooding! We had a months worth of rain in one day!
Next time Mr. SB, send rain in smaller consistent amounts please rather than a whole generous lot at once :bgrin

Without giving away your location, what area is it raining in?

For the 2nd time this week, torrential downpour and flooding!
Good ole Melbourne and surrounds, hot one day, flooding the next.
It’s any wonder I put half my wardrobe of clothes in the boot of car for needing to dress accordingly to weather extreme from one hour to the next :grn
Thunder and hailstones 2 townships away.
I texted daughter earlier as I was getting weather update of incoming storm, to make sure she and car are undercover.
We already had one car written off from hailstones.

Make that roof sturdy , because the hail stones …. ' .."...oh oh the …………. are getting bigger". Hail ….here has been only pea-sized, and only once since Christmas. But crikey we got some RAIN.

It was scattered, so where Southport got 250mm in 24 hrs, I got roughly 82. :rain :rain :bgrin

Yes, same for the house. Closer spacing of rafters and battens, the strongest corrugated iron (very likely, lasts as long as tiles almost—as long as you have single sheets across the whole roof: Trafalgar, the villa me and my business partner owned for a while, had two sheets, overlapping in the middle of the roof and that overlap was where all the rust was. We replaced that roof (it faced the sea and was the worst bit of roof) and the old sheets (dunno how old they were) were three times as thick as the modern ones we replaced them with.

Oh—we also replaced the box gutter: despite two strips of silicon at each overlap—the gutter we installed leaked. NEVER let someone design a house for you or buy a house or shop etc with a gully roof and box gutter! They ALWAYS leak! At the shop in Duthy St the landlord was always called to gunk up the box gutter between my shop and my neighbor’s shop! Funnily enough—no leaks my side!

This is what I mean by overlapping sheets: https://www.google.com/search?q=rusty+iron+roofs&sxsrf=ACYBGNRKJ5ryl4JRvPmP1_eZ-flppnlP_g:1579472637268&tbm=isch&source=iu&ictx=1&fir=KvL5JvytLt4ApM%253A%252CQp60cDfdnHBcQM%252C_&vet=1&usg=AI4_-kT1xyvqtG4xNzSloVpzlxsO74HwKQ&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiE_eeL2pDnAhXBILcAHU3WDVcQ9QEwAHoECAgQHQ#imgrc=KvL5JvytLt4ApM:&vet=1

You overlap them lengthways of course else they would leak! :rofl

More rain with thunder today, I don’t mind it, love the theatrics Mother Nature puts on.
Then my daughter says she saw a dog walking past her bedroom window.
It’s was a gorgeous black and white kelpie, seems the thunder caused him to flee.
Funny how they know which door to go to and seek shelter.
We comforted him and I gave him a smacko dog treat.
I said to daughter to look at his tag for his name and phone number,
The owner came within 10 minutes. That made our day to have a dog here for a little while.

I must get another dog but will wait until the heat has gone for the year. Another mongrel from the pound probably.
