From the courier Mail..

Birdsville, in the state's far southwest corner, has received 168mm over the past 24 hours - its heaviest rain in at least 100 years.

Bedourie has recorded 188mm, the best on record since 1938.

The record rain has sparked flood warnings for several rivers across the state, including the Thomson, Paroo, Fitzroy and Barcoo rivers.

Looks like no-one will be moving around SW QLD for a while..

Ah... John beat me to it.
Part of Global Warming? More water vapour in the air... more dropped inland? Green Australia in 30 years? Exciting times.

Might i reminde the person's of this forum.

I love a sun burnt country, a land of sweepings plains

i dont think this would go down well

I love a green grassed country,

doesn't have the same nostalgic ring.

But do bring the rain. we need it. the farmers need it.
