His friend instead tried to take the order for him.

'Hello, what can I get you,' he called out from behind the speaker.

The bodysurfer asked if he could get a McValue meal but was disappointed to find out 'they weren't sold at this time of day'. 

He instead settled on getting his hands on a triple cheeseburger meal.

Waves of at least four metres are forecast along most of the NSW coast, and three metres for the rest of the state.

Sydney's beaches are getting particularly battered with swells of more than six metres forecast for Bondi Beach.

There are widespread power outages across Sydney's far north and Hills District, plus others in East and West Ryde, Gordon, Pymble, Bexley, Hurstville, Lugarno, Peakhurst, Miranda, and Sylvania.

There are other localised outages in dozens of neighbourhoods across the lower north shore and eastern suburbs.

The Central Coast is even harder hit, particularly inland, with outages numerous from San Remo to Umina Beach. Areas around Niagara are the worst affected.

Rain drenched even the best-prepared pedestrians in Sydney with the strong winds turning umbrellas into useless pieces of twisted metal.

Trees were broken or even blown clear out of the ground by the wind and streets were turned into raging torrents that cars battled to drive through. 

The rains have doused 24 fires in the past four days, including the Currowan bushfire on the South Coast which had been burning for 74 days. 

But as rivers fill and overflow, emergency services are being stretched to their limits torrent to onedrive conduct rescue operations for those stranded by rising floodwaters. 

Train stations were flooded on Sunday after days of downpour, with photographs showing Narrabri station in rural NSW looking more like a ferry wharf. 

The state emergency service has already conducted 26 rescues for people stranded in floodwaters, six of those along in the Grafton region on Saturday night.
