hadn’t heard anything about him...just looked on his site and it appears he’s abused someone online did he?
Apparantly he's owned up to being one of the Admin team that posted the comments.

(have removed some photos Pete due to some language concerns. GG :police: :police:)

i occasionally check his site out, but can't say i follow his site as such, so hadn't heard about that.....reading that cut and paste shows his true character I guess.

Did some checking yesterday & appears there's some uncertainty as to whether it's Higgins himself or one of his "mod's" who lost it ???

Not good either way :'( >:(

Northside of Brisbane is gunna cop a drop of rain in a minute.

We got smashed with 40mm in 30 minutes or thereabouts.

Oh well, typical Queensland, its a nice sunny day now.

Listening to the rumbles all around me and watching it preparing to do the magical split and diversion around us as storms always do when they come from that South West direction.

Will know in about 20 minutes if we get anything from it, but not expecting much at the moment.

we were down for a 50% chance of up to 1mm......

All morning, its been a dirty sky. I'd gone down to Rosewood to have a look at a second 64 Cadillac. (The idiot wasn't home either)

Leaving there, the sky was just getting a real dirty look to it.
When we had the boat, I got pretty good at reading the weather huh.

I got the ol Caddy shuffling along and home and safe. It was a win that the idiot wasn't home, I would've been in his shed and missed the warning signs. 

I've got the caddy home dry,  :cup:i've now got water in both dams....

Must be plenty of rain up on the hills to the west of us, the Sth Pine river has broken the bank on our back yard and is up around 1.5 metres

Awesome, that means there's a good chance the creek will be running at this weekends camping spot  ;D

I think we are getting the Sh*t rain of Trevor, just a bit of drizzle and light wind.
I will go well north of us and go across to the gulf and keep going across they tell us.

We just got 25mm from a good little storm just now.
Though looking at the radar it was only on our side of Maleny, not much on the other side of the hills.

The whole area up here did get 120mm+ last Friday, so there should be something in the creek I expect.

That’d be Jeff. He has form. Pretty straight down the line type and a bloody good forecaster though. Just not so good at letting things slide - I respect that but you can’t win them all when it comes to social media.

Thanks rockrat....

At the last minute, it swung west enough to go past us....  ???
They're saying Lockyer Waters got 14mm, just not in my yard.

Only wanted it to make the grass keep going... we're green again here, but only just.

Just went out and had a look. 1mm  :'(

We ended up getting 2.3mm during the night (just down the road got 0.4mm), but bayside and some Northside suburbs got around 30.0  - 60.0 mm
