We had an incredible amount of rain last night - more than I have ever seen in one downpour. Apparently it was leftover from Cyclone Yasi. We went to our local Japanese restaurant and there was water pouring down the front windows and all over the floor. Driving there, we had to stop several times because we just couldn't see what was ahead - just all this water. But nevertheless a very resourceful spider in our front yard, who I saw starting this web yesterday, had it finished by this morning.
Hope the weather is not quite so extreme in your part of the world.
