Proper downpour in Randburg, I'd estimate 30mm or so. With small hail.

We had around 25mm with a lot of hail in Parkhurst :oops: Water came in under our kitchen door and it looks like the down pipes on our garage roof got blocked and our gutter leaked in to the garage, arg.

Yeah goodness, the smell of rain in Garsfontein was overwhelming, lots of wind and thunder.

Then poof -- all gone.

Yeah: looked like it missed us:

All this build up, and the only thing I have to show for it is half of the neighborhoods leaves in my pool :(

Round 1 here in Wilgeheuwel we have some little bit of rain so far. Wind is really really aggressive.
