Another 8.8mm overnight for a total of 30mm.

I totally misread the rain last night. I thought I'd head down to the Rosanna level crossing removal to get some photos of a big crane lift and thought the rain would just be a passing shower like you get on the back of a cold front. No, it was the front. 😂

Left here it was 17C by the car, 15 odd minutes later when I gave up it was 12C, the rain was howling sideways in curtains, water had found its way through my goretex, I was standing in 4cm of fast surface flow and there was water all over the lense. Needless to say the only workers I saw were huddled inside their trucks.

A slow drive home with a lot of water over all the dips in the road, water fountaining out of the drains and bugger all visibility. Dog has the grumps this morning. She's got under her blanket all curled up with her nose under her tail. Welcome winter.

Definitely beats watching the hills for smoke. I saw Baw Baw got a dusting overnight.

11.5mm this AM for the event, nothing added all day but saw quite a good shower over 1/2hr+ in Maffra after 1745'ish.

Will post a snow man pic taken today from the Dargo High Plains @ around 1620m asl.

Suspect snow o/night was shaped up earlier today on table top and this is the remnant figure. grin
