Lovely 40 degrees here in Cairns.  Bugger all humidity makes it easier to cope with...

Hey Bird, here ya go
https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-02-15/locals-evacuate-from-queensland-dam-failure-at-talgai/11968580
yea, most TV stations are reporting it as something like Warragamba Dam about to flood 1/2 the state

but ABC says
A leak in an irrigation dam which prompted evacuations and flood warnings in a southern Queensland town will probably have minimal impact to the area, engineers say

AMAZING VID!

The mighty Mitchell Falls/Punamii-Uunpuu, North Kimberley. Simply spectacular.

Another 80mm in the rain gauge the last few days. That's 897mm on the Mitchell Plateau since Nov 1st.

Feeling incredibly lucky to be living and working in the area and able to shoot and share some footage with Wunambal Gaambera Aboriginal Corporation and DBCA.

The Gibb River Road and Kalumburu Road are closed for the Wet season. The National Park is also closed and the gates are locked but start planning your Dry season 2020 trip now.

Yep, pretty spectacular, drones have made videos far more interesting and accessible.
Great colours.

And so the weather  cycle of El Nina and La Nina cycles continue ..
No one in a hundred year weather events,  No unprecedented thises,  No Mother of all Super Cells or Mega storms thats .....
 Just plain old Natural Earth weather cycles,  that some years are earlier or later,  warmer / cooler,  more intense, less than others or not ariving at all for years, As they have done ever since people started recording them .
Cant hardly wait to be Bombarded with  how the weather, how ever it arrives this year is Sensationalised and Bleeted about by the Media Experts and Climate of Doom Alarmists ...  Not !
