I managed to grab a ball before it completely melted but it was as big as a golf ball when I picked it up.
I have increased the exposure so that you can see the rain. It was coming down in torrents. The gutters had no chance of coping. The garden paths and road became rivers. Our balcony was soaking.
At the front and the back of the house I could hardly see beyond our garden. The rain was like a sheet of water. It reminded me of when I lived in the tropics in New Guinea. Today it hasn't stopped all day. We are lucky we live on the side of a hill and we don't get flooded like many other places around town.
