We got about 137 spots (1.1mm) here (Heathcote) and a little bit of wind.
Bugger need about 50mm fast to fill up the tanks and dams and a few months of steady drizzle to soak everything.

Bloody hell the sh!t weather has ended in Queensland,  now we have to put up with another six months of them whining about our weather. Don't know what you blokes are on about, it's a balmy 15 degrees and pissing with rain

BTW Big fish, I just checked, you were deported from Vic

Its already began.  The annual lemming run began around Easter.  Caravans aplenty on the road.  Cant say we don't turn the weather on for them!!

By the way Macca...I wasnt deported...I escaped before they caught me.   :cheers:
