Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

Since my gauge overflowed, past 200mm, I'll never know how much rain we got in the last six hours if Bunyip doesn't check in. One might say it was an 'interesting night' while the rest of Australia burns.

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

So funny a post, Marakai, you're a rough diamond. And so glad the greening up for your menagerie, was surprised it wasn't more given I was watching the tracks of blobs and much was inland. It was all pretty mild for us no great blasts to shake open cracks in the slab roof though a few drips to patch...

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

And green very soon, 28, good to see your falls..

Bunyip, Same amount here, 19mm Certainly been a few blasts with little warning. I'm sure your agility saved you...Maybe why we left off the gutters, sounds like tedious work.

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

Lol, I'm always unplugged.

But good bit of weather, I spent the last hour asleep, so cool and restful. 13mmm all up. Hope Marakai got some of that, it did spread further inland than I expected, even as far as Mt Carbine, I think.

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

Was at a small gathering of locals yesterday, the lost young man was mentioned but no news. Was upriver closer to Beryl Wruck's loss a fair few years ago. Thunder overnight and it continues today though after crossing Cairns continues straight north somewhat off the coast. Seems rain is due in the n...

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

Nice post, Marakai, chatty even. Am enjoying the drippy weather, and cooler. before the sodden and sticky. Not enjoying the mossies buzzing in my ear in the middle of the night, hence why I'm up now at 2am. Guess I'll have to ask partner for another sweep with the mister - wish this new machine was ...

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

18mm in the gauge at 4am, looks like a bit more coming too. Really useful. Hiya Marakai, good to see you posting. Same boat here, Scott, I didn't mow a large swathe around the mango with a wasps nest, waiting on partner to dispose, not sure my reaction. He had a looksee and got stung (grins)says he'...

28mm for this event so far. I almost detect a slight greening in the grass already.

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

Well, all I can think is the sluice boxes may be running at South Palmer River, but no thunderstorms here....yet.

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

Same here, Scott, barely a trace. Seems like we're not getting hot enough for the thunderstorms to build inland. - nice thought isn't it, 36 would probably do it if it doesn't do us and our plants first.

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

I really hate it when I hear the faint momentary sound of the equivalent quantity of less than a bat's liquid effluent lands on the roof and the BOM's prediction for rain has come true, albeit uselessly.

I see that Bunyip, we're into pre-cyclone weather and out of the dry baking heat blast, I think.

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

Surprisingly, we've had very good landline service and when needed, swift repairs. And my landline is my internet, very faithful. Can't say how well the mobile service works, I don't use it since visitors here used to have to walk up to the road to connect. The death at the zipline. I looked at thei...

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

March flies here are rare right now, but maybe I shouldn't jinx myself.

Amazing - am starting to avoid the heat of the day but yet how wonderfully chilly/refreshing the early morns still are.
