OT: weather in Sydney Australia

From: "Paul Tyerman" <tyerman@hotmail.com>

Speaking of weather.......

Hopefully the Pryor's weren't hit by the hail storm that went through 
Sydney on Wednesday night.  I think it only hit the eastern suburbs 
and I seem to recall that they are out west.  Hail stones the size of 
baseballs (no exaggeration) broke through roof tiles and into houses, 
destroyed windows and windscreens and did AUS$400 Million Dollars 
worth of Damage (last estimate I heard).  We're around 2 1/2 hours 
from Sydney but my wife was in Sydney to take a friend up for an 
operation.  All the panels on her car are now dented other than 2 of 
the doors.  Every other panel has at least 1 dent, plus the windscreen 
is badly cracked.  Sigh!  Thank goodness for insurance!!

I'm just thankful that it didn't hit down here in Canberra.  It may be 
Autumn (no irises other than the odd I. unguicularis), but we would 
have lost the glasshouse, shadehouse and most of the garden judging by 
the pictures of Sydney.  Horrific!!  Also accompanied by downpours and 
flooding.  One Council hall had over 1000 holes in the roof and is 
currently useless.

Anyhow, I hope the Heather and Bernard Pryor didn't have any hassles. 
 I don't think we have any other Sydney-ites as far as I know?

All the best.
