15mm here, no hail and very little wind.

The bit that missed us, resulted in over 100mm and hail close by.

I was happy not to see it.

Bugger all here..... a small cell swept directly over us, bit of heavy rain. 3 or 4mm at a guess

Second one went below us like last week...... maybe a mm or two at best.

Must be the lay of the land or something. No doubt, we will cop a cracker sooner or later.

‘Wild weather change’ set to smash huge swathes of Australia
In a dramatic weather turn, a low-pressure system is set to bring rain, snow, soaring temperatures and “hundreds of thousands” of lightning strikes.

Forecasters have warned of a “wild change” to the weather in the country’s south and east as the week progresses.
Sydney and Brisbane could see temperatures of up to 35C. At the same time Melbourne could get a drenching and snow could descend on higher ground in Victoria and Tasmania.

Gonna get ya today??

We were in the sites, but it slipped through to the northwest of us..... JUST.
We're pretty lucky here like that.

However, for everyone that just misses us, gets us one step closer to the bug one that does hit us.
Be lucky to have got 2mm yesterday.
The tanks are full, dam is almost full, grass is green, so i'm happy not to cop  a Shitload of rain.

Just tallied the rainfall figures for October.

Our 7 year average is 83.3mm - this year we had 196.5!!! :o

That definitely counts as a tad wetter than usual!

If you can believe the forecast, some decent rain due over the next 5 days.

We're down for between 80 and a 160mmout here in Woop Woop..

Be nice to see some wet stuff end up in Wivenhoe.

You better buy shares in roundup, because you'll spend more time mowing than getting that car moving.  ;D

We're down for 50-100 ???

& right ATM, we don't have any gutters on the roof!

Roofie started the job of replacing them on Thursday, then it showered on & off all Friday so he couldn't get up to clean the roof, & now it's supposed to rain most of next week, so who knows what's going to happen ??? ::)

It would. We had a fair amount for October but it only kept Hinze level (which I suppose is better than dropping!). A good dink into Somerset & Wivenhoe would be good though.

Don’t let Wivenhoe get over 40% capacity though, or the bleeding hearts who bought a floodway wil be suing again >:D

We ended up with 3mm.

They're saying, a 90% chance of 20 to 40mm for today..... lets see what happens.

UPDATE.... now saying, 40 to 80mm... I think 20 would be nice if we can get it.
