We got about 30ml from that lovely drop of rain. Greened it up again.

I will believe we get rain when it falls from the sky.

It is amazingly astounding how much grass there is in places now.

We now have more grass then what we had last year.

Even with the horses gone I don't have a lot of grass. I do however have some very healthy roos and lots of them.

It is amazing how much grass they eat. In the side yard I have left my chicken cage. The grass in it is a good 6 inches long. All the rest of the yard there is mown right down.

Really humid down on the beach this afternoon, yeah only 23 deg but you could feel the moisture. Wasn't sweaty but the air felt heavy.

Keppel Kraken closed for nearly all of May due to as the sign puts it "upgrades" . Looks like cracks in the concrete being repaired.

0.6 deg above average day temps so far

3 deg above for nights.

Hope we see some colder nights soon.


Last winter was so mild we had a few days we had fans going . I remember one strange day last year it was so humid in the morning we got some showers and then in the afternoon we got a SW change and it was cold.

And this

https://www.themorningbulletin.com.au/news/bom-radar-reveals-400mm-deluge-for-rocky/3178218/?ref=hs

Radar images show a large swathe of Central Queensland is expecting 150mm in rain over the next four days, but that dramatically rises to more than 400mm in the next eight days, coinciding with the arrival of a huge upper-trough on Thursday.he images show Rockhampton and surrounding areas are expected to cop the heaviest falls as the entire state braces for the biggest rainfall event since ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie.

Since when has Mackay been in Central Qld?

All the models I have seen show CQ will not get that much, it will be mostly north of the CQ area.

Yep. Hubby got all excited by the news we were going to be drenched. 15ml isn't quite what he was hoping for though.

I can always live in hope that we get more.

Looks like the BOM or more likely the Bully can't read maps.

The most I have seen is about 50ml for rocky and south so I think it is the Bully that can't read maps or the fact that journalists and articles are shared round the news syndicate.

It is a lovely sunny rather warm day here today. Good time for me to be getting jobs done.

BOM Yeppoon forecast has 20-40mm on Thursday and 35-70mm on Friday.

Just mowed the lawns today. Although not extremely long there was growth and they still are growing . Was expecting them to have slowed down but with the 3 things needed for growth (humidity, warmth and rain ) still there it has kept it growing.

Just after I finish the lawnmower throttle lever broke lol. Oh well.

A lot of people out mowing today. Thought i'd get it done rather than have to wait for the rain to end.

As expected not much rain here. They were always predicting we would be right on the southern edge.

Is it just me or does the radar show what looks like the convergence zone right on rocky at the moment?

Edit: also 12 mm so far

I guess it is rain here in Yeppoon as it is constant but not very heavy, kind of reminds me when it rains in the southern states. At least it will soak in.
