Alright, to be fair, I'm not actually living in a lake. It's just that the town I live in was recently flooded, as has what feels like the majority of Australia. (And most of the water has gone down by now anyway
A week straight of rain falling on the roof does absolutely nothing

Dammit, this is AUSTRALIA, it's not supposed to rain here!
If nothing else, I've learnt that I, and I suspect a lot of other Aussies (particularly of my drought-accustomed generation) do not deal well with large quantities of water coming out of the sky. What in the world are you supposed to do with it??
