After years and years and years! Finally, some decent rain! Its been fairly raining almost constantly for about a week now, with no signs of it stopping - and its not storming, more signs it'll last alittle longer.

:D

It doesnt look like much, but after 10 years. Its a piece of artwork :p

There's flooding and low level cyclones along the coastlines.

I guess now all we can do is sit back and hope it contines! I want to take a shower that lasts more then 4 minutes dammit! :p

Maybe its own turn for the El Nina instead of Nino...

Drought breaking... Yeah, I think it's about time we finally got some rain. Hopefully it keeps going this way. Too much water restrictions, lol.

LMAO Dough breaking :D. Well glad you've got some rain. I think we needed all the rain this summer ( because of the droughts we had)

At the moment its not really enough, all it will mean is that Level 6 restrictions can be put off a bit longer, unless it keeps up it will only be a temporary relief

Something should have been done a lot longer ago..... but thats Peter Beattie for you
