    Given 2 people have lost their lives in the chaos up there I'd say the warnings were well placed

    Two nice trees down at my place. A lovely big Banksia and a smaller very full Lilly Pilly. The Lilly Pilly is not out of the ground so I propped it up and hopefully it will recover. The Banksia took out some Grevillia and Melaluca that where looking very nice indeed. Hopefully a rude prune of the busted bits will save them.

    A big weekend of native garden renew coming up before Christmas.

    My very old rain gauge blew away as well.

    I think it's interesting that despite the large rainfall totals, the bigger river systems didn't go too crazy. Shows how dry the ground is?

    Kangaroo River (downstream of Robertson/Maq pass) didn't crack 6m. I've seen it at 8-10m. Nepean River at Wallacia Weir looks to have peaked at 0.38m, I've kayaked several times at levels higher than that. Wingecarribee is running (which is rare) but not flood levels. Upper Shoalhaven has barely cracked paddleable levels.

    Rain was patchy on the south coast. we only got 24mm at Kiama/Gerroa. Barren grounds above here was probably similar low totals. I'm probably following the Shoalhaven to it's souce tomorrow. Braidwood got 50 all up. Fords should be all open with those totals.

    few articles about lately on significance of the swell period too, legacy of wind and fetch as you say.
