Absolutely pissing down at the moment, after being drier than a dead dingo's dong for the last few weeks, if not months.

Intellectual movies have no part to play on CG!

"It's bucketing down" is another way to say it too.

I'd have thought sheep and kangaroos would be more likely to fall in Australia. Illegal immigrants at any rate.

What do I know eh?

25 or so. The summer was clinging on by its fingernails despite early reports of its death.

Today was a bit frosty though so it may have finally plummeted to its doom.

It rains weird shit from the sky from time to time.

There's all kinds of strange stuff falling from the sky: frogs, sardines, jellyfish, alligators and maybe - just maybe - cows! Here are some documented cases of really weird precipitation.

Well, rained so much there was 107mm recorded in Sydney (http://www.bom.gov.au/products/IDN60901/IDN60901.94768.shtml) last night.

Yeah, while we get 107mm in 10 hours of constant rain, you get 10mm in 107 hours of constant drizzle.

that's much better, you don't need a coat or umbrella in constant drizzle.

When it rains it pours must be a saying born in Australia.

I believe the saying is "It never rains, but it pours". At least, that's how I know it.
