LOL Jake, there's not much to read! I am always busy and only get by sometimes every couple of days or so, usually because I am too lazy to be technichal with any spare time I have to dump obs. Should stop being lazy! :grin: Currently working on WX server of sorts because the Xmas elves were nice and sent me a Boltek Storm Tracker(Ka-ching!) I may include the WX station but I am still in "development" stages...lol!

Cyclone preparredness for me is going to the shop for two cartons of durries, a bottle of rum and filling the Jerry's for the Genie...sorted!Usually do that about a day before they(BOM) issue the first warning, gets hectic after that happens in NQ!!!
I should be serious though, I am always prepared and I do a general check at the start of the season on the kit and then don't worry about it the rest of the season...short of two cartons of durries ect! :grin:

The extra 90.5mm brings the 48hr total for this event up to 286.6mm, ex-ossie passed us today without much of a show however there are some reports and evidence that Hay point near Mackay experienced a tornado this moring embedded in one of the feeder bands! Atleast this event broke the boredom for awhile...I am bored again! :D

Hey all, been trying a new thing with the weather station and using a "server" to upload it automatically. Not much success, it tends to delete histories instead of uploading it. Gonna go with cumulus I guess. Have kept up rainfall records from the manual, not much to speak of other than some good storms the other day(Friday).

24 hour rainfall to 2100(AEST)- 02/02/13. 1mm.
