Last night Broken Hill North had 57mm of water delivered in the form of precipitation.

As I type 12.07 pm CST it is still bucketting down.

It's the best fall I've seen since 1992 when I first lobbed here.

Sounds great, we could do with some of that over here around Canberra where its become pretty dry again.

Maybe there will be another Sturts Desert Pea flowering in your area before too long?

Cheers,

Richard

The rain will bring on more feed for stock as well as plants like the Sturt Desert Pea.

It may also minimise fire risk to areas that have had a large body of grass.

Also, it may encourage others to visit the area while it is looking so good.

Hi. Richard, You must be getting what was left in the clouds after passing through the NT. The Carpentaria Hwy between Hi Way Inn and Cape Crawford got 230mm in 6 hours. Road is now closed between Hi Way Inn and Cape Crawford and between Cape Crawford and Borroloola.Borroloola is expecting 10 meters over the bridge by tomorrow, with another 300mm expected in the next 3 days.

Richard,

Good falls in Central & Western Qld too.

196mm in Cloncurry, 221mm @ Augustus Downs and both Flinders & Landsborough H'ways closed. Only 25mm in winton, but still useful. Winds are, or have been a little cyclonic, but little damage around here.

Drove from Barkly Homestead to Longreach yesterday, and it rained all the way, from Avon Downs, through to Longreach. Heaps of water around McKinlay, and back to the 'Curry.

After the many fires, over the past couple of months, it'll be very welcome!

Bob.

Off topic. Looking at your picture, being towed makes a mess.

Ha ha, yes it does!

Not too bad on black soil, Old Girl, but that red, hilly country powders quickly, and gets into EVERYTHING. Always good to have a hot shower at end of the day.

Hi

BOM site shows a day with 62.6mm for Feb 2011 and then another at 64.6mm for March 2011...57mm is nothing! :)

Enjoy it while its lasts.

Cheers

So I am guessing Iodide St is looking like a river and the usual suspects have stopped with wet ignition in the deep water at the Gypsum and Wills St roundabout?

A mate in the north end of Chappel St has a water ingress problem in his loungeroom. Not unusual.
