There’s an excellent series of reports on the floods in Australia at Kae’s Bloodnut Blog. The blog’s proprietress has been liveblogging events from her place at Laidey, outside of Toowoomba. Just click the link and start scrolling; there are lots of photos.
I emptied the rain gauge yesterday evening and tipped out about 50mm… well, in the scheme of things 50-60mm doesn’t matter much…
I emptied it this morning at about, oh, 10 or 11am. It had 110mm in it.
I’ve just gone outside to check it again, and it’s already up to 56mm.
2:42pm just checked again, it’s now up to 80mm.
3:48pm = 100mm
5:35pm = 104mm and emptied
The blackhawks evacuating Forest Hill are flying over my place.
