Meet and Shoot - Sydney in Stock photography discussion and contributor experience Posted February 5 Yes, it's pretty mind-bogglng that some places have had more rain in a few hours that notoriously wet areas of the UK (such as Manchester) get in a year! Sydney's tropical enough for me at this time of year. Good luck. Hope you and your property stay safe, and that what's happening in Townsville stays away from Cairns. David.
