    34 mls in the Exeter gauge this morning. Probably a record for 24 hours for us.

    So now my 18000 litres of tankage should be full by the end of the day for the first time in maybe 8 plus years.

    10 & 1/2 mls in the Exeter gauge this morning.

    Based on the noise on the roof last night I would have thought more.

    Tanks not quite yet full, just a another 10 ml fall maybe to get the overflows working.

    Except the toilet & laundry keep drawing down the tanks.

    For May so far, 1st 4.5mm, 2nd 3.0mm, 3rd 0.5mm, 9th 16.5mm & 10th 3.0mm for a May total of 27.5mm.

    YTD now at 174.5mm which is 18.3mm lower than at the end of May in 2016. Should hopefully be able to make up the deficit!

    Updated rainfall figures :
    May 13 0.5mm, May 20 1.9mm, May 21 7.8mm, May 22-May 26 8.5mm, May 27 0.3mm

    Total May (to date) 46.5mm, Adelaide Airport total May (to date) 35.8mm.

    YTD 193.5mm. Currently at 0.7mm more than the total to end of May 2016. The fore-casted 9-24mm for Sat - Tue should increase that gap even more, although Mon & Tue readings fall under June.

    Adelaide Airport YTD 170.2mm

    Rainfall at Ponde from Apr 26 - May 25 was 68.5mm which is pretty good for Ponde considering it's in a rain shadow (located east of the Mt Lofty Ranges and the effect is exacerbated thanks to Mt Barker which splits the streams from the SW)

    Areas from Gawler to Burra, even 15km east of Burra were green when we drove around the region on Thu-Sat last week. Much nicer than the customary brown colour which one normally is used to seeing.

    I’m sure we’ve got a few more days in May? Bloody better be or my work program will be up the creek.

    Just shifted a concrete pour 3 times due to late May rain concerns.

    First 2 days of June 2020 yielded 7.9mm & 1.0mm.

    I have discovered an error in my rainfall spreadsheet so my correct monthly rainfall totals are as follows :

    Jan 23.2, Feb 24.6, Mar 4.0, Apr 95.7, May 51.5 & Jun to date 8.9mm with the YTD at 207.9mm.

    Um, I think that if you add your 10.5 + 0.5mm for June that you actually have 214mm YTD, so actually you have ~6mm more rainfall :) at this point in time. You had a much better April than I did.

    Not much happening for the next little while rainfall or storm wise.

    My count was to end of May. I'm sure you'll overtake me in June despite my current lead.

    Bugger. But then again I'm 3 floors in the air building steel concrete & timber and do not need the rain during the day onsite.

    Coldest temps I recorded during that cold spell were around the 2 degree mark. There was light frost on the "lawn" and parts of the garden.

    I've recorded 1.0+10.0+5.5 & 1.5mm = 18.0mm from Saturday until Tuesday morning bringing my June total to 27.6mm and YTD to 226.6mm.

    1.7 + 12.1 = 13.8mm for me so far for this system. Scraped in to the 12-36mm range predicted on Fri morning for the next 4 days.

    June to date = 41.5mm & YTD 240.5mm.
