I'm inland in NSW and we have had almost no rain here, but I know people in Lismore and Ballina who were very lucky to be all right in the recent dreadful floods.
Constant rain is depressing as you can't get outside and do much - I hope it's not damaging your vegetable garden.
Good idea to go with the same specialist for your son if he's struggling, rather than risk a long wait. Your daughter must be disappointed that her orientation was cancelled, but I'm glad she is not having to travel in the bad weather on the roads..
I hope things dry out for you there soon! We actually need more rain here, it's a shame it rains where it isn't needed and other areas remain dry!
