To ifege: Fire & Rain

  • Hi Ian

    Sounds like the entire south eastern seaboard of Australia is covered in smoke. Brisbane just had 3 days of it luckily with Beijing type air quality. All the flooding rain storms were on the Gold Coast, but all rain is welcome. Brisbane only got a little over 640 mm rain last year, about what Melbourne normally gets. Average is 1145 mm. 2nd driest year on record in BNE since 1902 with 406 mm. We have been getting good storm rains since Christmas Eve. The ground is so dry that dams only rose 1%. Hope more rain is on the way.
