Seems to be patchy, we've only had around 100mm since Thursday. Our dam is only back up to where it was after the rain a couple of weeks ago.

Someone mentioned pool flushing, did a big flush of the sand filter yesterday so clean as a whistle there, pool will refill, I'm away this coming week it doesn't matter if it overflows.
Had to laugh the other day, Max, my resident Magpie, jumped into the pool on the top step the other day, first time I've seen him do it in the 12+ years he's been hanging around, he could stand on the step up to his neck while he had a bath.

We had around 85mm last night, even the frogs have had enough & have moved inside. Found this one on the floor of the ensuite when I went for my morning wizz.

They get into the septic system and work their way up to the toilets, we have to tell guests to check for frogs when they use them.

@62woollybugger On the news yesterday they were saying frogs were showing up everywhere here (not including cane toads), it's quite funny actually, we hear that frogs are in decline and you don't see them or hear them in drought, but when it rains they miraculously appear.

We've normally got lots of different types of frogs around our place but they've been a bit scarce with the drought. It's only been recently with the drought that they've been coming up the septic system. Since the first lot of rain a couple of weeks ago I can hear a lot more of them around.

A bit blowy here... plenty of rain by local standards but not compared to what you lot have had over there. White dot to the east of the cyclone is where I’m at

Hope all you flooded folks over there are safe, sorry to see your base level flooded Skegs I hope there’s no damage beyond the cleaning requirement, especially as you’ve worked so hard on that part of the house of late 👍
