    42mm for the week and 101.2mm for the month. Both house tanks, the granny flat tank and the three tanks for the vegie/fruit trees, are chockers.

    The dam is still in need of a major top up though, as we have mainly had showers. A goodly deluge is needed for our dam to get good run off.

    Looks like todays forecast rain is watering the Coral Sea.

    A bit of info on how LA Nina will affect our summer. The good news? Shouldn't be any dangerous bush fires, we should be free from heat extremes, and there will be much needed drought relief for farmers. Hughie, however, may be very busy.

    Im pretty sure the dinosaurs died out when they stopped gathering food and started having meetings to discuss gathering food

    I think a few farmers round here with bogged headers and shot and sprung grain are not real keen on more rain at the moment. And definitely not the ones down in the riverina who can drive a boat over their grain which was ready to harvest last week.

    I dare say you are correct. But it's a big country, while some may suffer in the short term, others will prosper, and the restoration of ground water and irrigation storage can only be good for the future. But that's a bitter pill to swallow for those less fortunate in the short term, for sure.
