30mm.

Great total Scott. the radar showed it hanging up just above you then pushing up through the Johnston area. We just copped the edge. Bingil Bay would show a fair total as well I would imagine.

Wow thats big rain Scott.
Washed out just as it hit Mareeba, think only about 2mm if I'm lucky.
Everything has greened up again already, hopefully it will not be another month till we get a decent fall again.

EDIT: Only 1.2mm

That 28mm last night became 42mm by this morning. After the main stormy part it continued to rain for some time.

So nice to go to sleep to the sound of rain on the roof. In the 7.5 years I've lived here that would be a first. Mostly it's been short storms that move on quickly.

Did I mention we've got water restrictions. One of the towns 3 bores dried up a few weeks ago. Hope it keeps on raining.

Ended up with 195mm overnight..

Over 200 for the day counting a couple of heavy showers during the daytime..Glad you got some 28..Innisfail only got 10 mm...Simmo 1.2mm..wow......Weary 9mm..looking at the radar most would have been expecting more..I think it must have expended itself over our place...strange isnt it SF ,how totals can vary so much over a short distance..you guys got way more than us the night before..Bingil bay recorded 146mm the night before..

No fun being the bullseye Ron...I now have to organize an expedition 1km up through the slippery gorge to my intake to get my water started again..havent been up there since 2011 and I aint getting any younger and I have the flu..really hoping to have enough overcast and showery weather to leave it till friday morning when the boy can come up and help...till then its buckets for domestic water ...creek crossing and the road out needs a bit of work as well..

Yes Scott, such is the way of the weather.

I have noticed in my very short time here, that Bingil Bay gets the line share off a Southerly feed, particularly from the SE. I wonder whether Hinchinbrook Island has some bearing on this as it Sth Mission seems to be tucked in behind it a little more. I haven't really noticed any other patterns yet as the rain in recent times has been predominantly off this feed.

Having said this, I prefer the steady constant rain to the deluge. Especially as my place still has plenty of unlandscaped mud around it😬.

Another 10mm since I emptied the gauge this morning. Not even showing up on the radar🤔

Our creek has not topped the banks either since Yasi, but this is the 2nd time this year that it has come up and over the banks.

She certainly pizzled down for quite a while there last night! we ended up with 215mm for the 24hrs.

Anyone else noticed the Cardstone alert reading of 555mm in three hours since 9am?

Must be a malfunction

Has been fixed Hickory it seems. Not showing that figure anymore.

14mm so far today. Nice and cool, but I do fear when the sun finally shows itself😬

All stopped out here, but I will leave the gauge til morning to check. I'm not going to brave the back door which is crawling with mini black stink beetles. No way. Vacuumed enough of them tonight already...
Driving to Cairns tomorrow morning, might leave it a bit later so that everyone else can pack down the mud before me.

Nothing too exciting here, just an extremely noisy green tree frog yelling through the kitchen window. Must have been trying to use the pool as a mating pond. Had to be relocated.
