mate we are hanging out for the rain, we'll be disappointed if we don't get bucket loads of it. It's so dry up here the grass is dead, and plenty of the state is drought declared...bring it on i say  8) 8) 8)

Expecting some really good late winter rains. Just what the farmers need around here - and so does my garden and water tanks. Was still -1 this morning and 15 today. But getting close to spring temps say 2-3 and 14-17 degrees.

yeah mate about 75% of Qld is drought declared currently i think i heard the news report....have had about 16mm of rain so far and hoping for more tonight (which is when we are supposed to get the heavier rain). So far in this rain event they've had record August daily rainfall at Charleville and Cunnamulla and good falls out Roma way aswell, which is great to read about...they all need it. Reading Weatherzone forum just a minute ago, they are saying Sydney area could be in for some interesting weather in the coming days

Started to rain steadily last night - checked the rain gauge this morning - 13 mms.  Just checked it about an hour ago and total of 22mms. Still raining and will be on Monday but clearing.

Very good for the garden and the water tanks.

We got just under 50mm here over a day and a half, good steady light rain that should have soaked in nicely. Didn't hear the thunder storm that came through Brissy about 11pm though, I was fast asleep by then. Weather back to being nice today, though a touch windy

Top of 8 degrees today, a windy reminder that winter wasn't that long ago.
