Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

G'Day weather watchers :)

Yep dry up here too, will be nice if we get a drink this week , Our creek is very low and starting to smell , will have to cart water soon if we don't get a good storm to freshen it up.

Re: Tropics day to day weather talk

I don't know about storms around here just yet, have not had any real build up as such yet.
But it it good to see some rain falling out in the center of QLD , not wide spread but it is at least something,
