    It rained here today. Coming down off Sugarloaf and into Seahampton and through West Wallsend and onto Fassifern. All 0.05 mm. At least the wipers got some use.

    We got an afternoon storm on Thrusday - 23mm :) and then yesterday a southerly blew in with rain ...... lasted about 30/40 minutes and we got horizontal rain blowing 5 metres into the pergola :eek:..... still to check the rain gauge but a guess is close to 40mm :D.

    Ok, got it Bert ,27 ks. Or 19 mins from the CBD.
    Should have looked there (map) first.
    Think they are not to accurate with their times ,must have measured that when all lights were green and roads were empty. 19 mins for 27 klsfrom city to B/RIDGE.:eek:

    Yeah Chris - I actually thought it was 22 klms but @ least 35 minutes.

    Checked the gauge and there was 35mm in it :) ..... topped the tanks and pool up :cool:

    Hi Bert
    I got directions of the GPS.
    Thats what made me doubt the measurements ,may be on an country rd perhaps but not through the CBD.you couldnt do those kl in that short space of time in little old Adelaide let alone a busy place like Brissy.
    Lol. Its good you got some water for yr tank and pool. 40 ml whats that in inches, about 1 and 3/4s i think ,nice drop. When you have had enough turn on the fan and blow some this way ,will do my vegie garden the world of good.

    We are also suffering February weather on a bad year, and it’s not even Christmas, after well below average rainfall for the past 2 years.....:(

    Can’t remember the last time we got 30mm rain in a 24 hour period.

    The unusual daily westerly winds from the central OZ deserts, are also frying any vegetation in it’s path. :confused:

    Probably best to obey Doc’s orders for a while. ;)

    Will give you time to enjoy other hobby’s, instead of further Kombi panel & paint repairs. :rolleyes:
