Okay Iíll start lol. Happy new year all, hope we have all had a good start to the year so far and a safe one. Hoping this year is our year in terms of rainfall, definitely canít be worse than 2018. My total was 472mm which is just over half of Gladstoneís yearly mean average of 897mm. How did everyone else fair around CQ?

Just no end in sight.. seems the heat this summer is not in Central Qld. We've only had 6 days in the 30's this summer. (Not complaining about that). only 3 of those 6 were over 30.

I have found a way to guarantee rain at home. Bring in my fencing contractor.

We have been so grateful to 'Team Rubicon' a group of returned vets who come into disaster areas and lend a hand. They took a day to pull down our old boundary fences so we could have our contractor get on with the job of the new fence. Without them this would not be happening for months since I am out of work due to an operation.

Not a lot of rain but enough to keep the piggies very happy.

Moisture from ex-TC Penny is getting dragged into the cap coast by them south easterlys! Might get a good few mm of rain from it.

20mm this morning, is this it for the day radar has nothing more coming . Why are they predicting further rain tomorrow?

And like 2 days ago they said we were going to get hardly a thing lol.

Ring the BoM and ask them Vinnie instead of constantly complaining about the forecasts . It's very difficult to pin point how much rain might come from a decaying Low in any given area. There are plenty out west that would love the 20 mm you got over night.

Ex Penny seems to be moving further south than first thought. Nice showers overnight and has been on and off with drizzle all morning now.

Be nice to get another 100mm or so, but I seriously doubt that will happen.

14.5mm here in the gauge.

Definitely wont happen. Maybe another 5-10mm if we lucky.
Almost about time the SWW was cancelled. Appears to be nothing left of this system.
