    Hasn't really stopped here in 36 + hours but not complaining - no doubt the catchment area is getting nothing to top up the dams :)
    Things planned to do outside this week look like they'll get done next week

    That's what they keep telling us Bert. A nice way to keep us under level 6. With all the rain we've had I just find it incredibly hard to believe.

    I wonder if instead of spending all the money on the traveston Dam the Qld state govt had just given everyone on the sunshine coast a tank?...
    I am so very tired of rain and we are going backwards this year too because of it...not to mention how long it's taken to get anything done on our poor Kombi.

    9??? How did you manage that? Oh that's right. Melissa does all the work while you are still thinking about how clever you were to score that Samba. ;)

    I haven't washed Lola for nearly a year - that's why she always looks scruffy compared to the Sunny Coast crew Kombis. Actually, I'm just a lazy cow, but water restrictions are a much better excuse!! :D

    I feel for those of you on water restrictions not being able to wash your kombis, we are resticted only by the amount of water in the tanks, so the rain is GOOD for us.:)
