Out of hibernation...

areas west of Ingham have received 180-250mm of rain since lunchtime, and south of town up to 150mm over the same period. Several roads flooded. The highway south of Ingham at Francis Ck could be at risk - several people on Facebook commenting the water is close to the road.

Water everywhere between Ingham & Rollingstone. Creeks are torrents, surface water at Bambaroo Hills, and lapping the road at Helens Hill plains

Just letting you guys know that my little weather companion Dax passed away yesterday at 13.5 years old. I'm pretty devastated at the moment, I will miss her dearly. Buried her under her favourite frangipani here this morning, she'll always have free run of 'the green place' and keep a watchful eye on it for us. Rest peacefully my little angel.

Awwww RD thats very sad - sorry to hear that.
I have just refound my password from all those years ago when you guys kept me sane when my house in Emerald was flooding - i owe you all such gratitude. I've moved to Maggie Island and I often think of you RD as I pass through Bilyana on my way to Cairns. I remember that beautiful garden all blown away - I am sue by now it would be back to stunning again.
Hope you dont mind that I have popped back in after all this time - I have been watching, just wasn't able to comment till i remembered all my details.
Heres to a wonderful wet season.

Thanks for your kind words!

Yes, Bilyana is pretty much back to how it was before Yasi, you'd never know that a cat 5 had shredded the place. The rapid rate of regrowth never ceases to amaze me in the wet tropics.
