That deep wide blob I linked to around 9pm last night gave us absolutely zero.

Still awake at 2am still nothing but a little lightning way in the distance.

By 8.30 this morning, the 5mm from 1pm yesterday had evaporated back to 3.5mm, on what was a cool day here. So how can the official reading time of 9am make sense...?

Haha, you guys, allergic to chores?

Nah, actually I know living up here the guys really work hard at the tough stuff. It can be a very exhausting life doing maintenance given the climate.

And, turning out meals, specially dinner in a 35 degree kitchen is hard.

Nice cool, not humid day up here today. Nice SSE breaze. Good for a reprieve but unlikely any rain up here over the next couple of days unless we get a storm.

I think you would do better with a deep cycle battery, coupled to a small solar panel and controller. With that you could drive a 12v fan and get some sleep. Here's two links to the sort of gear you need.

Solar Panel

12V Fan

This afternoons radar looks more like something you would see in Jan. Not the first week of December

Yeah Simmo, its certainly showing a serious amount of moisture...it could be a very wet weekend indeed.....I hope it pushes inland a bit and soaks the whole region...some of your models aren't looking so silly now...


Dormant I'm not afraid of chores ..just "lists"...they are generally a good barometer of my wifes menopausal emotions...so I shudder and cringe when I start hearing the verbal
"list"...

Good soak in type of rain too. Also dropped the temp about 4° in a bit over an hour.
So pleasant now, with the SSE gusting through the house.

Thanks for your tips and links, Hickory.

However, being off grid already, and partner being my handyman/genius it's just a case of him getting an el cheapo $30 inverter since we always have a spare auto battery charged for machinery and heaps of cheap floor fans.
It's just... me getting it on the list (grins and waves at Scotts rude reference to his wife's hormones).
Then we'd be able to run a few lights and fans while our sweat pools on the floor and the lightning crashes above.

I was thinking you'd get longer hours from a 12v fan than an inverter and a 240v fan. Inverters are only about 84% efficient and 240v fans draw more current,- but if you get say, 8 hours out of the battery, you're all good for that night.
Move it to the top of his list. Priority #1. grin

Ha!, Hickory, ain't my list - and you're making my eyes cross with your numbers. I'm sure you're right though.

A great cool night's sleep and 6mm in gauge - I feel almost human.

Looks like all models are in agreement now. BOMS rainfall for sunday for Mareeba 40-120mm, Monday 15-50mm

Three day rainfall forecast for my location has EC, GFS and CMC all ~100mm with falls up to 200mm in the usual places on the tablelands.
Falls of 100-200mm along the coast from Port Douglas to just south of Mackay.
