Your dog looks like he is having fun Simmo...more than you could say for the goats I suppose..

heaps of water around Tully today..about a 5km stretch of highway right through Tully was under water with the water getting up near the Golden Gumboot in the town itself..

Bulgun Ck alert had 499mm overnight..this is the headwaters of the creek that runs through Tully..

a bit of video showing the southern approach to Tully...

Stuck in Holloways. Bottlo doing a roaring trade too.
My only gripe is paying Liquorland rip off price instead of Uncle Dan's far more reasonable price.

Just looking back over the Tully Sugar Mill records..

Tully with 1500 odd mm so far is having the wettest month since Jan 1981 (2003mm)...

I wonder how often Cairns has exceeded 1000 mm for a month..

and still waiting for YS to post up his overnight total I would expect that would be a couple of hundred mm more than Tully..

Cairns last reached 1000mm for a month in 2004, although with a very near miss in February 2011 - 999.2. (They would have made it had it been a leap year - 0.8 fell on 1 March).

They had 821mm up until 9am yesterday; looks like there were some issues with yesterday's data (not sure if these can be resolved or not) but the nearby alert gauge suggests maybe 30-40 since then. Hard to see them getting to 1000 from there.

Can't say exactly Scott, i emptied 150mm out yesterday afternoon and this morning the gauge was full.So i would have to estimate similar to Bulgan's recording as we normally get a pretty similar reading.

It is the highest that i have ever seen the creeks, they went over bridges that have not been under since i have been here.
So it would have to put the MTD at the 1800+mm mark.

Still think South Johnstone's January 1981 effort of 2414mm in 11 days will take some beating.

Highest month-to-dates at real-time Bureau sites as of 9am today were in the 1500s.

Will there be a repeat tomorrow morning of flooding on the Barron delta? Asking for a mate.
