The rains have come a month or two early this year and struth, the impact last Friday was something else. It rained for about an hour and this was the result. It is worrying because I do not remember our area of Russian Market getting this bad last year even after sustained hours of rain so if we get a 3 or 4 hour dump this season, I am launching the lifeboat !! We had to go over to the family apartment and only made it 500m before the traffic was just so bad we ha to hit a restaurant for an early dinner and a calming beer.
