Who or what source actually said "1 in a 10 year storm."? If people don't want further disappointment and unwanted hype, I'd suggest know the difference smile .

On the other hand, if you don't mind hype or being sort of disappointed, no need to fret.

maybe from here you PM JohnC to clarify the source of
the channel 7 news face book post so as to
answer the question you posted. who knows JohnC may
even save you some effort and post the answer to
your question here in this thread.
without checking with Gm i'll draw a long straw and
assume Gm read johnCs post and thought ch.7 media
posted a statement from the bom and i would bet the
journo goaded the "one in ten year" statement out
of the bom, they sure as hell wouldn't have
bothered volunteering information like that.
a one in ten year event is reasonably insignificant
and no big deal which is what i thought when i first
read it and took it with a grain of salt anyway.

I noticed the post JohnC made regarding the 7-News Facebook, but decided because the quoted stuff it didnt contain detailed information about the weather situation, I didnt take much notice of it. Yes, the source of the information could be clarified, maybe just for peace-of-mind and a little more perspective, however that depends on how much time and effort one wishes to spend going to those lengthsI dont really think it's warranted.

I noticed the Gm dont know that reference, maybe short-hand for something mentioned above also. As I dont know what it is and cannot recall if it was in a post I read sometime, Im not going to pursue it. I dont really like making assumptions that have no evidence/backup, whatever or going over and over and over things all the time, so Im going to leave it at that.

I hope that provides some clarity smile . In future, when the thread title is changed to include certain words, Ill reconsider posting.

Edit: My apologies for not recognising what Gm might mean sooner.

Total for the system was 19.8mm, not bad to start off the year, good to see a good fall over double digits in January as well instead of the pissy 1-4mm we'd usually get.
