Re: Last weeks storm of the century
Was out in the city that night, in of all things a Mini ( oldie model too, '76). It was absolutely p***ing down , got to just before Brusnwick Rd on Royal prd. and there was cars stopped everywhere, the water was at least 2 foot deep!!. Thought screw it and drove through it at the speed of a snail... then we got to Sydney Rd.
I kid you not, there were wheelie bins floating down the road, boxes of litter and all sorts of crap, the water was covering the footpaths and lapping the doors of the businesses. Water was covering the wheels on the mini and half way up the door, 'lil bugger still kept going though!. Caught up to a police car that went past us earlier at the Shell servo on the corner of Bell st. and Sussex st. and they could'nt believe we were still going, almost p***ed 'emselves laughing.
