It rained in Kalgoorlie yesterday for a whole 5mins, it doesnt happen often but when it does it pours. There are no drains in Kal so the roads get flooded very quickly and every kid just runs for the street to play and get splashed by passing cars. These photos are of my street which is 4 lanes wide, most streets here are very wide because the camel trains which used to bring supplies in from Perth had to be able to turn around in them.
Luckily enough I just got into my car before a 4WD full of lovely miners sprayed water all over it.....
only to be broken down later (ha ha!)
One thing you need to learn quickly here is that you do not drive through water at breakneck speed.
