Rain and wind came through my area about 0530, waking me up. Rained hard up until about now, wind has dropped off. Was certainly heavy, until I saw the radar I was sure i'd be hearing thunder and seeing lightning, but it looks like it was more of a band than a storm front.
Nevertheless 10mm+ in a couple of hours will make everything grow like stink over the weekend.
October for the Gippsland home came with a couple of isolated storms which brought the rainfall total close to average. We seem to be that blob in SE Victoria that received 'average' rainfall over the past 3 months... tanks are full and it's only now we can start walking out onto the grass without sinking into mud! As for around Melbourne, nature strips are starting to look a little parched already. Fingers crossed for some decent rain next week.
