Its sooo wet

Ex tropical cyclone Oswald has certainly sent some major water our way, over 500 mls over the last couple of days! Damian is flooded in and stuck at Rockhampton, he tried to get home from Mackay for my birthday yesterday, but couln't get any further than Rocky. The water tanks and dam is full, and I have plenty of supplies to not have to go anywhere during this weather, and I doubt I can get out at the moment down our track as it would be too slippery. We've had strong winds as well, but nothing too bad, more annoying than anything else and it blows the water in to the shed area so we need to keep doors shut etc. The rain is great for the paddocks too. We  still have a lot of dirt (now mud) around the shed from the build, which does make things pretty yukky but the grass will eventually grow and then it won't be so bad during heavy rain. And the horse keeps insisting on walking over this section of ground churning it all up in the rain instead of staying on the remaining 150 odd acres...what is with that? :) I think we still have quite a bit more water on the way, so will see how much we end up with...

  1. Wow you have had a lot of rain. We have only had about 60 mls so far over 2.5 days but there is more on the way. So far it has been steady rain and most of it is soaking in which is goo since the earth was so parched. Hope you are enjoying your peace and quiet and not getting too muddy.

  2. Happy Birthday to you! On the up side you are starting the year with full dams and rain water tanks, (me as well) certainly a plus.

    We have received 839mls and we are flooded in. Although we have received rain like this before it is the first time that we have seen land slips in our area. Good weather for a duck!

    Keep safe.
