Good to hear you are getting some rain bundybear my father in law in Booyal said he just emptied 80mm out of the gauge since 6am,pretty good since Bundaberg was only forecast 5-10mm
Thanks Brad, it has been a darn long time coming. Water carters have been doing a roaring trade. If it wasn't for having 3 big tanks and only owning very water efficient washing machine, re-using all our water in one way or another, composting toilet we too would have been buying. The son wasn't too impressed with me when I would go and turn the water pump off if he was in the shower too long.
I can not remember the last time I had all the tanks full. It has to be more than 2 years since the dams filled although I still have 2 to go out of 4. They aren't even huge dams just big enough to service the water needs of a few horses and what everyone else uses town water for (gardens, car washing).
If we had not got lucky with that storm the other night we would still be paddling up poo creek. For once we got more than the surrounding area.
I am glad your father in law got some useful rain today. Hopefully now our drought has 'broken' we will get more which is still needed.
