It's a bit damp here

We've had more rain in the past few days than Canberra usually sees in the whole month of March. And there's more to come. This photo was taken near the intersection of Kingsford Smith Drive and Ginninderra Drive this afternoon - still raining, and the normally tiny creek swollen to many times its usual width. Fortunately much of Canberra is planned with large low-lying green strips to channel the water. Other places aren't so lucky - there have been evacuations in Cooma and Goulburn to escape rising floodwaters.
