Veronica has solved the mystery, turns out that the killer was Logan’s DAD! Who would have guessed?

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines “wet” as:

  1. covered or soaked with water or another liquid; not dry
  2. having a lot of rain

In Sydney’s case, both of these hold true.

Don’t go into that building, Veronica!

The Sauce has been informed that several trees were knocked down over the course of the storm. Sources indicate damages could be in the tens of dollars. Veronica’s investigation is going well, although the indifference of the Neptune community sure isn’t helping. Stay tuned.

With the worst of the storm passed, Sydney’s highly lucrative Plastic Umbrella industry have issued a joint press release:

We are delighted to announce that our projected profits for this year are set to be through the roof. We are grateful for the thousands of people who kept buying our poorly constructed umbrellas through this ordeal, and we are especially thankful that, as a society, we have not done more towards combating climate change, or else we would never see weather like this.

Yeah, the rain has stopped. Still wet though.

It is still rainy in Sydney. There were unconfirmed reports coming in earlier that it is not as rainy in a different part of Sydney. However, our sources indicate that it is, in fact, rainy everywhere in Sydney

13:05 PM

Our resident science expert, Dr. Leslie Thompkins, has provided us with the scientific reasoning behind this storm:

This storm has happened due to their being lots of water in the clouds, which has come down to the ground. The windy conditions are a result of there being a lot of wind in the air which is swirling around Sydney. I’m not sure what the lightning is, I didn’t get that far into my “Horrible Science” book
