    Default Rain, rain, go away...

    What a complete ar$e the weather has been.
    I've got MIL here for the last two weeks and we booked ONE night away in the Hunter to see the lights for the kids and the gardens for her.
    It's a washout.
    The gardens haven't even had their lights on for the last two nights.
    I could cry!

    We won't get a refund on the accomodation either and I'd prefer not to risk driving to areas we don't know and risk hitting flood water or something but DH is insisting on going anyway.

    WWYD?

    I'd still go, just have to allow extra time on the roads.

    But ur right, this weather is horrid. We just moved back from Sunny WA and I just want to get out of here.

    I wouldn't go. Many roads around pokolbin and newcastle are closed due to flooding and its only going to get worse.

    I can very much relate phony! We went up near tweed for 2 weeks over Christmas and it rained the whole time. We are now visiting inlaws down near Jindabyne etc and it's raining here now, they had sun last week.. Grr. If I were home in the hunter I'd say come over but even if we were home we'd have rain Ha ha. Be really careful on the roads when it's heavy rain they get big potholes that are hard to see. So much for summer huh!

    Thank you @Qrazelna

    oh I know, Soon2b4, we've done very little with MIL who has travelled from Ireland and was so looking forward for a break from the rain back home.
    Ireland's sinking at the minute too.

    @Phony I live in the Hunter region and I won't even drive the short trip into work this morning! I drive a small hatchback so I've got to be wary of tackling flooded roads.

    There's widespread flooding in the whole area, heavy rain & strong winds.

    I would most definitely give it a miss.

    Don't go! The flooding is really bad where I am and set to get worse. Could end up being a dangerous trip, not worth it IMO.

    Sorry, I should have said that we set off tomorrow.
    If it was today there's no way I'd risk it.
    I'll keep an eye on that live traffic site and I've installed it on the ipad for the drive. All the same, I'd appreciate if anyone living there could give me an update tomorrow.
