Yes, I have had the pleasure of meeting Jamie, on a previous occasion.  Why are you people being so unkind?  He is a nice bloke!

The deluge that hit central Queensland has broken a 64-year record for Bundaberg, with the city receiving seven times its October rain average well before the month's end.

A Bureau of Meteorology spokesman said Bundaberg had received 519mm of rain already this month, well in excess of the previous record of 280mm set in 1953.

Success by the looks of it, though i'm sure you'll let me know if it's only me that can view it...lol. That should make putting pics in trip reports better now 8)

i assume you mean what host site?...i used Imgur. I still haven't worked out how to make separate albums in their site or if i have settings on private viewing and what not there yet, Photobucket was so much easier to navigate then this hosting site is. Might need to try looking at it on the home computer instead of the tablet and see if that shows stuff differently, i used to struggle with Photobucket on the tablet also...lol

Notv a drop at our place once again...storms have been splitting and missing central Brisbane mostly,  which isn't a bad thing...abit more rain would be nice though, but can't complain about the 47.5mm we've had the past 2 weeks either.

little bit of purple stuff on the radar, might be time to cover up the cracked and chipped windscreen on a panel van worth about $200.00.

I hope no hail stones go through my rust holes.  ;D

we were camped on Straddie for 11 days over Xmas and New Year.....watched storm after storm hitting everywhere in SEQ and Northern NSW but where we were camped on the Northern end of North Stradbroke Island. Several times looking at the radar i commented to mates, "geez i'm glad we aren't camping at such an such location".....even the bottom end of North Straddie at Main Beach looked to cop a heap of rain and storms that we missed out on. We got real lucky with our Xmas camping weather this year, but i reckon there's quite a few people that'd have some horror stories to tell.
