Blustery is not the word. Certainly the rain rain rain came down down down overnight to bring chaos to the capital. 66mm in six hours apparently. The local participants in our conference last night could confirm it was widespread. This morning is slightly better but still dire. Viv says that the water at Silver stream Bridge was up to the bottom of the car door, so I'm glad the car didn't stall there. All things considered, the overall mood on the train today seems very cheerful, even though they lost 23-9.
