Been getting pre-storm blustery winds.
And it looks like it's absolutely dumping to the east, that would be right over the Featherbed Ranges. Moving across to north and west.

Just heard a lovely roll of thunder.

Feels like it might be coming this way. Wind stronger. A lot cooler.
Maybe that's just wishful thinking.

The radar has gone from being fixed by 5pm, or 9 hours, to 33 hours now, tomorrow at 5pm. frown Just when there's something to look at.

I think we just got about a millimetre, might go check it now that it's stopped.

Edit: yes, you could probably call it *just* a millimetre.

Glad you are getting a little bit anyway 28...

I think I'll continue to enjoy life at ground level DU..I have no wish to jump out of a perfectly good plane ...no doubt a real rush the first time though I'd imagine....

Wow the humidity has gone a bit mental today..sweating just sitting here...cant wait to get into a bit of concreting tomorrow..it will hopefully put a small dent in my muffintop...

It's still got me puzzled why they de-commissioned the CNS Aero radar.
So good as a backup, and it could 'see' toward the south of CNS better than the Saddle Mtn installation. My only guess is that it was a cost cutting exercise.

Heaps more small flying ants and little biting gnats since the RH & DP jumped up a few days ago too.

Yeah Hickory, crappy radar situation to shut one down....

I was just about to walk outside and start up the concrete mixer and a shower came through...

Now I don't know whether to wait a while and see if it clears or take the day off and have a few beers..its a real conundrum..!

Few mossies started here since the rain the other day..

No no no no no. I hate them more than mosquitoes, I think. I can't read in bed when they're around, they head to the light, then fall into my bed and then bite. Thank goodness they haven't arrived here yet.

At least something is working again.

We've had no 3G service here at all for TWO whole days. Spent that trying to resolve via twitter and Chat culminating in a 90 minute Chat this afternoon with to 5 different people, and no result. TWO DAYS is unreasonable, and out here it's life-threatening when both our ambulance drivers only have mobile.

Got 1.0mm from yesterday evening's shower. I guess it was fairly widespread because the morning was absolutely gorgeous.

No more rain yet though. frown

I've worked out what that interference is on the radar!


It's the wind farm!

Hahaha RF

Fingers crossed for some storms today.

Some gauges down around sunshine coast have had their wettest October on record. Most of these records only go back 20-25 years. 417.4mm MTD for Tewantin. Wowza!!

😂 heard a fruitloop on the radio the other day talking about out the smaller 4ft, the medium humansized, and the larger 12ft yowies. Bloody hell all these yowies can hide pretty well.

Rex Gilroy the cryptid researcher, funnily enough there is evidence of a Pygmy Aboriginal group in the Tablelands past an they stll can't explain the existence of Homo floresiensis on Timor nor how they got there without a boat.
Check out Birranbindin myths of the Aboriginals or Hairy Man.

Yeah well you should live near Tully...Some of the locals are enough to convince me that Aliens do indeed already walk amongst us.. crazy


Tully is world famous to the fruit loops as the home of the original crop circles or "saucer nests" as they were called..

Tully crop circles

The hills behind Tully and some other areas of Nth Qld are also, apparently, home to pygmie tribes or perhaps the smaller 4ft version of the "Yowie"..?

Wild Pygmies..

Not surprised. I had one of my horses caught in a hail storm once. Took 6 weeks before I could saddle it again due to the bruises the poor thing took from it.

Hail would have caused injury to a lot of them, hits to the head can kill. Then there would be those who lost their minds and ran till they could run no more.
