Your welcome up here in chilly but dry North Florida if you need a place to dry out!

I've been out of the loop regarding aussie weather.........but california has been drenched with rain, flooding, mudslides, etc. Anyone on here from the flooded areas of ca?

BTW, sunday here in some parts of Jersey they got 32" of snow.....and it was 17 degrees this morning (single digits in other areas). Spring seems so far away! :mad:

hey thanks for the wishes guys, Im from melbourne Aus, though we are experiencing warmer weather these last coulple of weeks, the eastern states are drowning. All our rivers/lakes are pretty much 100% full, but this is a huge shift from the last 5-10yrs, where some of these lakes were as low as 5% capacity. I'll try and get some pics to post
cheers

Curious?...are the eastern states the aussie area that have been effected by the droughts? Is this heavy rain a bitter sweet thing?

Just wanted to bump this thread in support of our Australian members, they just had a Tsunami hit Australia. Once again would like to say thoughts and prayers go out to our Australian TT Members.
