    Yeah we’re stuffed 30cm of water over the drive and it has washed away all the work DH did… so now I have to decide if we cancel the Dr or hire a car.

    Oh Judi that’s awful. We made it home from the Drs today just in time. We had a huge storm about 5 min later. DH had to dig a drain out the front on Saturday so the front path doesn’t wash away again. Our driveway is washing away though each time we get a downpour 🙁 .

    🙁 :hug: Judi and DH

    We did get the storm with heavy rain but only about 12ml total, and very little lightning,thunder,wind.

    Edited. Radar says 25.4ml for Nanango , 6.6 for Kingaroy so I guess we were inbetween.
