I walked home ankle deep in water this afternoon. Glenferrie Rd was flooded, as was my street, and, well, pretty much the whole area. I got home after a 3 minute walk with my clothes as drenched as if I'd just been in a bath, including water inside my boots! It was bucketing down, my hair was flattened onto my head within 30 seconds of leaving the cover of Glenferrie station. It was great fun! Lots of people were huddled under shelter, but I figured I had to get home and I was going to get drenched eventually anyway... didn't matter how much I put it off or how quick I walked. So I just strolled home through the downpour. My clothes are still hanging in the shower, dripping!
