This morning we woke to pelting rain and 'hurricane' like wind. I felt so sorry for Tony having to go to work in it.
During the morning it sort of abated and we even had some sunshine. This afternoon the weather bureau put out another alert for damaging winds and heavy rain with hail and maybe some thunder and lightning.
Just before 3.00pm it struck again. The wind was recorded at over 90kmh and it even scared me a bit. The rain pelted down but because the wind was so strong it fell horizontally.
There were lots of reports of fallen trees, power lines down, hail on the roads making driving hazardous and some snow fell on Mount Lofty and in the Hills. A lot of people lost their power.

Anyone for surfing?
Most people I have spoken to are fed up with this wet weather and are now ready for some warmer days. I know, in a few months we'll be complaining that it's too hot!
