Backyard flooded from this rain.
Bolt of lightning hit the house.
Who says nothing exciting happens in Kelso...lol
Got a shock from the kitchen tap I was using at the time and fried a few electrics and destroyed my phone line.

Brought myself a lotto ticket

showers forming to our north thru the palm group, storms near the towers and new cells forming between mingela and woodstock, hopefully a sign of another unstable morning ahead.

Wow, you were very, very lucky .... glad you're OK.

Please make sure you get all your electrics checked over by a qualified electrical contractor. Wiring can be partially damaged and you may think it's working OK, but it's not.

Hope you've also got an earth stake on your home and surge protection in your switchboard. This will stop your electrics from being fried. If you already haven't already, make these 2 things a priority, would save much heartache and maybe lives in the future.

Good luck, keep safe .....

1mm added over night from a all to quick shower so 66mm recorded yesterday. Yes my yard was flooded as well, Gutters overflowing on the roof and every thing is a mud pit of a front yard from cars being parked on the grass. Bloody grass is laughing at me and the seed heads are already knee high. Bugger going to have to mow on Monday if the ground dries out enough.

Would the humidity in Yeppoon be similar to Townsville? Or is it just the temperature that is higher there not so much the humidity levels?

massive activity to the south, east and west, and of course the flow is northerly now and there is nothing to the north.
driving me batty, when we have a westerly, no storms form to the west. when we have a southerly, no storms form to the south. no its northerly there is activity everywhere else. cant win.
