Well, where I live, the power flickered, the internet was lost, but the storm didn't hit hard here. I was at a friend's place on the saturday night, she lives out near Bethells, and there was some wind, rain, the power went out for an hour or so, and it was cold, but still, no major drama. Tuesday, I saw a play at the Maidment Theatre (on campus) and walking with my friend to where she parked her car, I didn't realise until too late that the footpath i thought I was stepping on was really an ankle deep (at least) puddle... my shoes spent the next day on top of the hot water cylinder.
So we didn't get it as bad as everywhere else. But the rain was still persistent.
