Has been slow drizzle on and off here at Browns Plains but nothing to get real excited about yet.

Water, we are talking water aren't we but the beer sounds good..lol

I've been graced with 163.1mm so far this year.

Jan 63.1 Feb 18.2 Mar 7.5 April 40.1 May 31.2

Our dams are around 25%. I think we went into winter last year at 60%

Got any figures for up there ?

I must say that we are lucky here near Murwillumbah. When everywhere else was in drought, and some still are, we were the first area to lift water restrictions in '04 I think it was? The reasons being that even though the Clarrie Hall Dam isn't huge, it services a small population and the valley which lies within the rim of the extinct volcanoe which Mt Warning is the centre of, has a relatively high rainfall. The problem is the future; this dam suports the current population of around 6000 but current development sees the pop at 26000 within 10 years. Well derr, let alone all the other infrastructure like roads and sewerage treatment, it's very short-sighted to multiply the population and just 'hope for the best' with the water supply.
I know there is lot of folks on here that live in SE QLD where water is short but there is certainly no halt on new residential development going forward even though the dam can't supply the current population. That's just crazy. Every new residential area gives birth to new industrial areas all requiring water! It doesn't take a genius to realise that it just can't go on this way.
Where we live now we are on tank water and it is virtually impossible for two adults and two kids to empty a 10,000 gallon tank with all the daily washing etc. Sure, the cars don't get washed often, but on the other hand we let Cooper stand in the shower as long as he wants (Although we are educating him in the way of not wasting things). I am just accentuating the the amount of rainfall we get here, and that we are lucky. If we happen to be here in 10 years, I'd rather be on tank water than relying on the shire water supply. Get some tanks if you don't have yet!

We had 32 mm in Tuggeranong and son in Alice says that he has seen the Todd flowing since he has been there, about 2 years...
I'm more worried about the loonies heading down to the high country to play in the frozen rain....
Funny, years ago we took our sons to the beach and eldest had never been to the seaside before & wanted to know who had spilt salt in the water...
