Quite the opposite actually, while i've been alive I can't remember it ever raining this much. Certainly isn't like this most of the time. Normally we get 1-2 days MAX of rain, and then at least a week maybe 2 before the next dump.

2 years isn't a very big sample size for a basis of "worst weather" :p

Bah, I reckon it was this bad a couple of years ago, seems every other year there's a patch like this since I came here in 2005... Not even snow yet, it's not that bad :D

I think I may have read wrong, but did you say you haven't experienced snow in Chch?

I think in 08 and 07 we got a fair bit.
