275 2/5/2023 2:24:00 AM Fall 1862 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #105: 1 / Detached Cavalry
Played prior to a battle against an army possessing one or more cavalry brigades. The ONLY effects are the Army’s Commanding General’s battle rating (offense or defense) is immediately reduced by 2 and no Cavalry general’s battle ratings may be used in the battle. The effects end at the conclusion of the battle. Cavalry generals are not available for casualty determination. OR: Place one PC marker in any space within four spaces (includes river connections) of a single cavalry brigade. The four space range many not be traced through Northeast Alabama. The space may not contain an enemy SP or fort, but may contain an Ironclad or Torpedoes.

228 1/28/2023 10:32:00 PM Summer 1862 Confederate Message Yes Auckland's rain certainly made the news here - looks like a river on side of a multi-lane highway in this video.

I hope it didn't do you any damage.

Coastal Australia gets similar but away from the coast it tends to be not as intense, typically storms that last an hour or two (can be lots of rain and hail) but typically it doesn't rain for days.

Not sure whether you heard about it, but there was a lot of rain inland back in November (where is did rain for days) in NSW and Victoria. The flood took 6+ weeks to flow down the Murray, Murrumbidgee and Darling rivers before it reached the sea in SA in early January. This water moves very slowly because the land is so flat, but it also floods many kilometres either side of the rivers.
227 1/28/2023 9:58:00 PM Summer 1862 Union Message PC marker in Lebanon instead.

Thanks about forts. I wasn't aware you needed to be in supply.

Did you hear about the flooding in Auckland? It is pretty bad around the city. I reckon it will be over a $1B+ in flooding insurance claims. Loads of houses are now unsafe and the airport was actually closed for repairs.
