S.E. Qld.....

Post  gus on Sun 27 Jan 2013, 11:19 am

Since moving into our new (old ) house (cabin) its been bloody hot and extreamly dry .We ran out of tank water so had to shower in dam water .

It got so hot inside the house the chairs were hot .One dam dried up th other had a 2mt drop till you reached water .

This is todays view .

I hope your tanks and dams are all full now Gus. Looks like you have some fire wood for next winter there. We are copping a battering down here. From one extreme to the other. Stay dry mate.

That'll be enough of that sort of language young man Smile

Glad you've got some relief and some water on your property, as long as it doesn't flood. Shocked

Just think how it'll settle the dust for your next ride and how much time you have now to paint something that wasn't or polish something that was. Very Happy

Nice to see rain I imagine Gus? We here in Wagga have forgotten what rain is. Hope it hasn't caused you any grief. BTW thats a beautiful slice of Australia you have there.

Please send some rain down to Bega Gus - so far we've had a total of 3.5mm for January. pale I can relate to your drought stories, although I haven't actually run out of house water (yet).

Thoughts go out to all affected by the flooding in QLD and Nth NSW. Just watched the news and didn't realise the extent of it all. Hoping you all stay safe and get through it with minimal damage.
